#CUT50, a bipartisan national organization, founded by Van Jones and endorsed by Newt Gingrich and others, has called for Wednesday, March 1, 2017 to be a "Day of Empathy" across the country.  #CUT50, which is calling for a 50% reduction in the incarcerated population in the US, is sponsoring events in all 50 state capitols.

WISDOM and EXPO will be joining with Matt Haney, national leader of CUT50 on Wednesday, March 1.  Members of EXPO will be sharing their experiences of incarceration and of return from incarceration.  Legislators and staff have been invited to share in the 1-hour event.

Wednesday, March 1

State Capitol, room 412E

EXPO members from around the state will be meeting at 11 am on March 1 to strategize, prepare and connect with #CUT50 organizers.  For more information, or to learn about transportation plans from different parts of the state, contact Jerome Dillard at 608-320-0188, or David Liners at414-736-2099.
