Celebrating UNIDOS

Our team attended the UNIDOS 22nd Anniversary Gala this past week and we could not have been more honored to be a part of their celebration!


Expanding in Eau Claire

This week, I had the honor of talking to a group of women from around the Eau Claire area about Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin and how the new laws will help their ventures within their community.


Summer Update

Summer is in full swing here in Wisconsin and all of us here at Marsy's Law hope that everyone enjoyed last week's Independence Day celebrations and all the fun that our great state has to offer! One of our favorite things about Summer in Wisconsin is all of the great festivals and events taking place all over the state. Our team has loved having the opportunity to travel to these events and spread the word about Marsy's Law and victims rights.

Pledging to Stand With Crime Victims

With the election season upon us, the Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team has been hard at work getting our Stand With Crime Victims Pledge out to candidates for legislative office from all over the State of Wisconsin. As most of our supporters know, our legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support on first consideration as 2017 Senate Joint Resolution 53. However, there are many more votes to go to make Marsy's Law a reality in Wisconsin.


Introducing Clare

My name is Clare Schwirtz and I am an intern for Marsy’s Law of Wisconsin this summer! I am going into my fourth year at UW-Madison with plans to graduate in the spring of 2019. My majors are political science and legal studies and I have thought about continuing these interests by going to law school. I studied abroad in Bangkok, Thailand last semester and have come back with numerous new interests and perspectives.


Training Institute Recap

The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault [WCASA] hosted a training event for advocates around the state of Wisconsin last week. But in our opinion, it was more than just that because it brought together a like-minded group of men and women who have one cause – to help the victims and survivors of sexual assault heal.


Kate Thanks the Rape Crisis Center

I cannot express how exciting it is for me to personally announce that the Rape Crisis Center of Dane County has endorsed Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin with their full support for our grassroot efforts for the people of Wisconsin!


Introducing Taylor

I’m Taylor Olson and I am the new summer intern at Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin! I am currently a student at UW Madison double majoring in Neurobiology and Psychology with a certificate in Criminal Justice. I will be graduating in December of 2018 with the hopes of continuing my education in either graduate school or law school.


National Police Week

It's National Police Week and the Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team is thrilled to have the chance to recognize Wisconsin's men and women in uniform. Our bipartisan coalition has incredibly lucky to have the strong support of Wisconsin's law enforcement community, and we would simply not be where we are today without these brave men and women.

HELP of Door County Supports Victims' Rights

HELP of Door County Supports Victims' Rights

At HELP of Door County, our advocates often see that survivors of domestic abuse feel powerless. Victims feel that they do not have a strong enough voice in the court process. After being brutally attacked, too many victims find that those who kept them in a cycle of violence have a stronger voice and a host of clearly understood rights that they themselves do not have. In many cases, victims have rights that end up being trumped by the rights of the accused, because the victim’s right either is not in the Constitution or is not as strongly worded as it could be.
