ESTHER Prison Reform Task Force

The Wisconsin prison population has more than tripled since 1990, and the state spends over $1.3 billion per year on the Department of Corrections. Wisconsin has the nation's highest rate of incarceration for African American and Native American males.   ROC Wisconsin is advocating for the state to invest in programs and strategies that will end racial and economic disparities that fuel mass incarceration; to reduce the state's prison population and the number of people on extended supervision; for residents to view people convicted of a crime as human beings, members of families, and assets to the community; and for formerly incarcerated people to be restored to full participation in our communities, our economy and our civic life.

Don't miss this interesting presentation!   The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.
