On April 7, Wisconsin voters will have the opportunity to vote YES to give Wisconsin crime victims additional rights in the state constitution.
Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin updates the 1993 victims’ rights constitutional amendment by giving victims new rights and strengthening existing ones. Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin also gives crime victims the constitutional right to enforce their rights in a court of law if they have been infringed upon during the criminal justice process.
Vote YES on Question 1 on April 7, 2020, to give crime victims the equal rights they deserve.
