JUNE 5, 2019, JACKSON, MISS.: Four Mississippi Mayors have officially endorsed the passage of Marsy’s Law in Mississippi, a law that seeks to amend the state constitution to give crime victims an equal level of constitutional protections, no less vigorous, than those afforded to the accused and convicted.
Today through July 14, Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin will be at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls, talking to voters about our amendment to Wisconsin’s constitution to ensure equal rights for Wisconsin’s crime victims.
Measure now qualifies to appear as a referendum on November 2019 ballot
Now that Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin successfully cleared the legislative process, Wisconsin residents will have the chance to vote on the initiative next April. Our team will be working to ensure Wisconsin voters understand how important it is to stand up for crime victim’s rights.
After the successful passage of Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin through the legislature (twice!), we’re looking forward to the next steps in making Marsy’s Law a reality for Wisconsin crime victims. In order to be added to the Wisconsin State Constitution, Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin will need to pass a statewide referendum next April.
