We all want dignity and justice for our loved ones, and healing for those who have suffered from trauma, addiction or mental health crises.
Instead, politicians have built new prisons, incarcerating over 41,000 of our loved ones leading to an incarceration rate of 676 to every 1,000 in Wisconsin. (Prison Policy Initiative).
Together, we work to end mass incarceration, expand funding to community-based alternatives to crimeless revocations and treatment alternatives and diversions. We will close prions and re-invest money in programs that will rebuild communities that have been devastated by mass incarceration.
Our current campaign, End The Lockdowns, highlights the lockdown crisis happening in Wisconsin's prison such as Green Bay Correctional Institution, Waupan Correctional Institution and Stanley Correctional Institution. These lockdowns started during the pandemic but still remain in place, limiting people who are currently incarcerated's movement, showers and access to necessary medication.
We call upon Governor Evers, Department of Corrections Secretary Carr and lawmakers in Wisconsin to immediately commit closing the prisons and start the process toward justice reinvestment.
