This has been a big month for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin, and our support across the state continues to grow! In case you missed it, last month we celebrated several important milestones as bipartisan legislation passed through a State Assembly Committee as well as a key State Senate committee.
As Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin has been traveling the state talking to residents about the need for stronger rights for crime victims, we’ve been incredibly lucky to meet a huge number of outstanding local victims’ advocates that are on the front lines of the daily fight to stand up for survivors and work to keep them safe. This week we were very lucky to partner with some of these advocates as the top sponsor of the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event in Green Bay.
As you know from seeing us in your community, we spend a lot of time on the road — but recently, we had some good news back at the State Capitol. Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin passed through a key state Assembly committee with overwhelming bipartisan support!
We had a great time traveling around the state of Wisconsin all summer long. The opportunity to connect with supporters makes us even more excited to jump into the fall season as we continue to spread the message of equal rights for crime victims. Our Wisconsin communities have shown their support for making Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin a reality.
As our team has been traveling around the state attending picnics, air shows, fairs and visiting offices, we have received endless support from our local communities for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin.
As our Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin team has been traveling across the state this summer, we have noticed how willing local community members are to get involved with our initiative.
We’ve been seeing you at events all across the state, from the Waukesha County Fair to EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. As we begin looking forward to Fall, we’re thankful for all the excitement around equal rights for crime victims – and we want to make sure everyone knows what the fight ahead looks like!
We’ve been out talking to all of you at events this summer, and we’ve run into a lot of excitement.
Something we hear over and over again is that Wisconsin has a chance to take the lead for victims of crime. That’s true, and the fact is Wisconsin has a proud tradition of leading the nation forward on many fronts. “Forward” is our state motto, after all.
