Race to Justice 2018 begins with a WIN!

Senate Bill 54 is dead!

Many WISDOM leaders helped to lead the opposition to SB54, the bill that would have irresponsibly spent $350 million to build a new prison in Wisconsin. After so many visits and phone calls, the State Senate decided not to even vote on it: they completely dropped it from their agenda yesterday.

This is huge victory, and it sets the stage for serious conversations about how our state must responsibly reduce the prison population. WISDOM members really answered the call last week. Hundreds of you contacted Senators’ offices. About 100 of you went to the Capitol on short notice: besides more than 50 MOSES members, there were people from MICAH, RIC, CUSH, ESTHER, JOSHUA, NAOMI and JOB. We made a difference!

The Race to Justice Campaign now builds on that momentum. The first Race to Justice training will be this Saturday in Wausau. Besides learning a lot about needed reforms, we will be building our statewide strategy to ensure that real change in the Criminal Justice system is a top theme of the fall elections.

The Race to Justice training will also be held in Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Superior, and Eau Claire. Visit http://www.rocwisconsin.org for details.

2018 is the best opportunity we have had in many years to get some real change in Wisconsin’s penal system. But, that will only happen if we demand it.

Be part of the solution:

  • Come to a Race to Justice training
  • Get involved with your local ROC Wisconsin group
  • Make a DONATION.

Thank you.
