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.
There’s nothing quite like a Wisconsin summer. From Summerfest to fairs and festivities, Wisconsin is full of chances to enjoy this great weather.
As we’re traveling the state we’re getting this question more and more: How can I help?
The days are getting longer as summer gets underway and that means we’re putting in even more time building support for equal rights for crime victims!
We’re back at it after having our hearing in the state Capitol, where survivors of crime, the Attorney General, our bill sponsors, law enforcement, and legal experts all spoke for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin. Lawmakers heard how updating our state Constitution would help ensure equal rights for victims.
Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin is a grassroots movement working with a broad coalition of Wisconsinites seeking to secure equal rights for victims of crime. Our coalition includes victims, victim advocates, law enforcement, state legislators, legal experts, and community members across Wisconsin, and we’ve partnered with Attorney General Brad Schimel and his Office of Crime Victim Services, as well as victims’ rights groups like Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Here are some Myths and Facts about our proposal:
