Letters of Support

It’s been a busy summer for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin! We’ve been traveling the state to meet with our friends and neighbors about the importance of Marsy’s Law and advocate for its passage next April. 

Our supporters have also been very busy writing to their local newspapers to encourage support for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin in their communities, and thank the legislators who championed this effort in the Wisconsin Senate and Assembly. Check out some of the highlights below: 

La Crosse Tribune: “We believe that it will help victims get justice, encourage more survivors to come forward, help hold criminals accountable, and make all of our communities safer.” - Monroe County Sheriff Revels and DA Croninger

Racine Journal Times: “As a survivor of violent crime, I know how important it is for victims to have their rights protected throughout the difficult legal process.” - Teri Jendusa Nicolai

Beloit Daily News: “I'm grateful to them and all of our lawmakers for coming together to clear this final legislative hurdle and move Wisconsin closer to making equal rights for crime victims a reality.” - Maggie Kozikowska

Eau Claire Leader Telegram: “After my sister was brutally murdered, our family saw just how harrowing it is to be thrown into the difficult legal process through no fault of your own.” - Melissa Cox

Janesville Gazette Extra: “This experience is why I’m proud to be one of the thousands of survivors, victim advocates, law enforcement leaders and Wisconsin residents who have joined in support of Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin.” - Maggie Kozikowska

Dodgeville Chronicle: “I clearly saw the need to level the playing field between victims and the accused.” - Teri Jendusa Nicolai

Lake Mills Leader: “Through this process, I saw firsthand how limited victims’ rights are in our current legal system, and the need to strengthen those rights.” - Gabrielle Stathus

La Crosse Tribune:  “Anyone can become a victim of crime, and each day, innocent people are subjected to terrible acts against them that change their lives forever. If surviving the crime isn’t tough enough, victims then have to navigate a criminal justice process that can make them feel like they are on trial. If it happened to you, wouldn’t you want to know that your rights were protected?” - Toni  Travline

Reedsburg Times Press: “My story, and those of so many other survivors, clearly demonstrated the need to strengthen victims rights.” - Staci Brunner

Door County Daily News: “Now, it’s time for Wisconsin’s voters to have the final say on Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin. I look forward to voting to support equal rights for crime victims in April, and helping to prevent future victims from suffering the way that I did. I urge my fellow community members to do the same.” - Maggie Krumpos
