Momentum Growing for Marsy's Law for Wisconsin

We’re back with an update on the momentum Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin has had since we kicked off our statewide campaign to update Wisconsin’s Constitution. Our brave survivors have told their stories, and we’ve found broad and passionate support for ensuring equal rights for victims of crime.

Here’s the rundown:

We started with our kickoff in Milwaukee at the Sojourner Family Peace Center, where Attorney General Brad Schimel, local law enforcement, and survivor Teri Jendusa-Nicolai talked about the impact our legislation will have in local communities. During the statewide tour, which also included stops in Madison and Green Bay, survivor Christina Traub and bill sponsors State Sen. Van Wanggaard, State Rep. Todd Novak, and others talked about why they’re fighting for equal rights for crime victims.

Our statewide kick-off also included Ian Henderson, Associate Director of Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault; Karen Michaels, Executive Director of Golden House in Green Bay; Manitowoc County District Attorney Jacalyn LaBre; Brown County District Attorney David Lasee; Racine County Sheriff Chris Schmaling; Brown County Sheriff John Gossage; and Mark Beutow, vice president of the Milwaukee Police Association.

We also launched a statewide advertising campaign, which included a digital ad featuring survivor Christina Traub, survivor Fiona Wakefield, Attorney General Schimel, and Rep. Novak. Additional digital ads and billboards reached all corners of the state.

As you can see, we’ve had lots of excitement and a broad base of support backing up our effort. We hope you’ll get involved!
