Coalition Growing for Equal Victims' Rights in Wisconsin
It was a great week for victims of crime in Wisconsin, with our grassroots coalition announcing bipartisan support in the state Legislature and even more victims’ rights groups and law enforcement joining our efforts statewide.
In other words, we’re gaining momentum in the fight for equal rights.
So far, there are 42 state legislators – both Republicans and Democrats – supporting our legislation, in addition to Attorney General Brad Schimel and district attorneys across the state. We’ve also earned the support of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, The Wisconsin Troopers’ Association, and the Milwaukee Police Association.
These groups join a coalition that includes the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and shelters like Sojourner Family Peace Center in Milwaukee and Golden House in Green Bay. And, of course, our brave survivors.
Survivors like Christina Traub, who recently told her story in the Wisconsin State Journal. We hope you’ll get involved too!
