ROC Wisconsin  

Restoring Our Communities: Beyond 11x15

JOIN US TO KICK OFF OUR NEW CAMPAIGN!

Tuesday, November 3, 2015
9:30 am to 2:30 pm
Bethel Lutheran Church
312 Wisconsin Avenue
MADISON


The day includes lunch.  There is no charge; donations to defray costs are encouraged.

Register with your local affiliate organization or email us, wisdomforjustice@gmail.com, to make sure we have enough materials and bus transportation to the Department of Corrections.

The ROC Wisconsin kick-off will include a prayer service to remember all those caught up in the system, a press conference, legislative visits, informational presentations, a trip to the Department of Corrections, and a chance to meet with others who share your concerns.  

As 2015 draws to a close, we renew our commitment to end mass incarceration in Wisconsin.  ROC Wisconsin will continue to demand all the reforms that were lifted up by the 11x15 Campaign to keep people out of prison, to treat prisoners more humanely and fairly, and to ensure those returning from prison have a chance to succeed.

ROC Wisconsin’s four principal aims:
•    For Wisconsin to invest in the programs and strategies that will end the racial and economic disparities that fuel mass incarceration;
•    For Wisconsin to reduce it prison population to 11,000, and to reduce the number of people on extended supervision;
•    For Wisconsinites to view people who have been convicted of a crime as human beings, members of families, and assets to the community;
•    For formerly-incarcerated people to be restored to full participation in our communities, our economy and our civic life.

You can RSVP through any WISDOM local organization or email us, wisdomforjustice@gmail.com.
