ROC Wisconsin announces the Race to Justice Campaign to raise many voices calling for serious reform and demanding that our broken “corrections” system be addressed by all who want our votes in November.
The first step in the Race to Justice was a series of local training and organizing gatherings where we brought together current ROC leaders, allies, friends and people who want to get involved. We got clear about some of the many issues and practiced telling our stories and hearing the stories of the people who have been most impacted.
After the trainings, we began doing outreach, and now we are holding a candidate forums for people running for Governor.
The conversation about needed reforms to the justice system is starting to happen on every level. We need to be sure our officials and those who want to represent us understand that significant change is urgently needed regarding Crimeless Revocations, the Parole system, Solitary Confinement, Treatment Alternatives and Diversions, MSDF, and more.
