During the week following the 2018 midterm elections, the Marsy’s Law for Pennsylvania field team descended upon the state Capitol to educate legislators on Marsy’s Law for PA.
It's hard to believe that the midterm elections were only one week ago! With all of this election coverage, the Marsy's Law for Wisconsin team wanted to be sure that our grassroots supporters heard the news about Marsy's Law's impressive nationwide victories: six states voted to enshrine the rights of crime victims in their state constitutions alongside those of defendants. Voters in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Nevada, North Carolina, Florida, and Georgia overwhelmingly approved ballot measures in all six states to secure and increase victims’ rights.
