My name is Maryellen and I am an intern for Marsy’s Law this Fall semester. I am a senior at UW-Madison and will be graduating in May of 2019 with a degree in Political Science and certificates in Criminal Justice and Gender and Women’s Studies. I hope to continue my education by attending graduate school or law school after taking some time to narrow in on what I would like to study, and getting a bit of work experience in a field I care deeply about.
This week marked the beginning of October, and in addition to all of the great fall fun that the month will be sure to bring across Wisconsin, it is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a very important time for the whole Marsy's Law team. As we travel the state meeting residents from all over Wisconsin and speaking with crime victims about their experiences, we all too often hear tragic stories of domestic violence and how it fundamentally reshapes the lives of those it touches.
