Spotlight Extended Supervision forum

February 13 @ 6:00 PM - 7:45 PM

A new report by the Justice Lab at Columbia University confirms that over one-third of those entering Wisconsin prisons are incarcerated for technical violations—i.e., broke a rule of supervision but did not break a law or harm anyone. This practice, referred to as crimeless revocation, occurs without due process.

Crimeless revocation has added considerably to the state’s prison population, resulting in a cost of millions of dollars annually to Wisconsin taxpayers. As importantly, additional trauma is inflicted on men, women, children, families, and communities.

Come learn more about how extended supervision is becoming Mass Supervision, what Michelle Alexander has termed “The Newest Jim Crow.”
