Blueprint Recap

posted Dec 15, 2014, 6:10 PM by Sophia Webmaster

Below are links to several articles about our 11x15 Blueprint to End Mass Incarceration In Wisconsin event last week.  We started in the Senate Hearing Room of the state capitol.  There was standing room only as our leadership outlined the Blueprint for legislators, their staff members and members of the press. 

Then we moved over to the United Methodist building where we formed ten new issue workgroups to refine strategy for the various sections of the Blueprint.  We finished the day by meeting by affiliate groups to firm up next steps.  Contact us if you’d like to get involved in one of the workgroups, wisdomforjustice@gmail.com.  They meet by conference call.

The press coverage includes:

·      An article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that includes many great photos.

·      An article in the Wisconsin State Journal about Solitary Confinement, that includes some things about our efforts.

·      A Capitol Times article about the event.

·      A Wisconsin Public Radio story about our work.

·      Wisconsin Eye did a short recap of the event on their Morning Minute.

·      A story appeared on Channel 3000, the TV news affiliate in Madison.

·      And finally, this link to Wisconsin Eye will take you to a video of the entire event, with the Blueprint presentation, Call to Action, and Closing Prayer.  So, for anyone who couldn't be there, you can see what you missed!

Thanks for your continuing support.  As we were reminded last Wednesday, these reforms are very doable. We have to decide and have the will to do it!
