Milwaukee, October 18, 2019: THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN WISCONSIN PRISONS

Peace Center, 1001 E Keefe Ave. Milwaukee

Friday, October 18, 7 PM

Joyce Ellwanger, from Ex-Incarcerated People Organizing, WISDOM and MICAH will be speaking.

 Wisconsin spends $1.5 billion on prisons, spending more on corrections than on higher education. It has a higher than average incarceration rate, private prisons, a racist criminal justice system, a broken parole department that has a lack of compassionate release for older prisoners and revocation of parole with no new crime, and many more problems.

Sponsored by Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, co-sponsored by Peace Action of WI, End the Wars Coalition and more.
