WISDOM Call to Action

Join us in Milwaukee as we present the findings of a ground-breaking Health Impact Assessment (HIA), titled Excessive Revocations in Wisconsin: The Health Impacts of Locking People Up Without a New Conviction.

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

9:00 am

St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church

1015 N. 9th St., Milwaukee

After the presentation, we will go to the corner of 10th and State, in front of the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility (MSDF), where people from Milwaukee County are brought for “Revocation Holds.”  There, we will hold a press event, announcing the findings of the HIA and calling on the Department of Corrections and the Governor to take immediate steps.


The new report describes the impact on individuals, families and communities of Wisconsin’s pattern of incarcerating thousands of individuals each year for rule violations related to Extended Supervision, Parole or Probation.


Copies of the report and other materials will be available to bring to your friends, neighbors, co-workers and members of your faith communities.
