We have started a petition demanding decisive action from Governor Evers. For too long has he chased bipartisan solutions that will never come while people suffer in Wisconsin prisons. He can act without the legislature.
Please sign and circulate this petition calling on the governor to meet three minimal demands: issue pardons to people in prison, veto prison expansions from the budget, and modify DOC policies to reduce the prison population.
We know Governor Evers is going to need a push, so we’re also pressing on members of his party to publicly join the call to action. Read our open letter to all democrats.
On August 30, 2021, we managed to corner Governor Evers after a press conference he held on public transit. We approached him and demanded he expand pardon criteria—he said he needed our resources, citations, information and demand in writing. Well, here it is, Tony.
