Date: 
Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Location: 
Fox Valley Technical College, 1825 N Bluemound Dr, Appleton

Rep. Evan GoykeMeeting will be held in Room HS114 A/B. Use Entrance 16.

Rep. Evan Goyke (18th District - Milwaukee) will be joined by formerly incarcerated individuals to talk about the financial and human costs—including being shipped out of state—of over-incarceration in Wisconsin. Goyke is the author of a plan (“Inmate 501”) and legislative package to convert Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake Schools from juvenile corrections centers to AODA facilities for adults. (The plan was first presented publicly on November 29, 2017, more than a month before Governor Walker spoke about a similar approach.)

You can find Rep. Goyke’s analysis and plan here. A video of the November 29 presentation may be found here.

ROC Wisconsin LogoThis event is part of the Race to Justice campaign, a series of local training and organizing gatherings being held in locations around the state, with a focus on justice system reform in Wisconsin. For four hours on a Saturday, we will bring together current ROC (Restore Our Communities) leaders, allies, friends and people who want to get involved. We will get clear about some of the many issues; we’ll practice telling our stories and hearing the stories of the people who have been most affected; we’ll get ourselves organized; and we’ll make plans for the next six months.

After the trainings, we will be doing outreach, and we will have candidate forums for people running for Governor and for the state legislature. We will make presentations and we’ll go door-to door. And, we will join efforts to get everyone in Wisconsin to vote this fall.
