On Thursday, December 1, the ACLU of Wisconsin Foundation is holding a Community Conversation: Voting Rights while Incarcerated.
Earlier this year the ACLU of Wisconsin released “Ballots For All, Ensuring Wisconsinites in Jail Have Voting Access”. This report aims to analyze previous steps taken and any progress of Wisconsin jail administrators to address formerly identified challenges and shortfalls in their respective jail voting policies, which can itself facilitate widespread de facto disenfranchisement in Wisconsin. Furthermore, this update aims to highlight the fundamental and intersectional barriers that prevent eligible Wisconsinites, both within, and outside of the carceral system, from fully participating in the voting process.
Come join us to have an honest, educational, activating discussion about the ACLU-WI Jail Voting report that was released this year and Wisconsin jail voting. This discussion will include a panel of community leaders and the ACLU-WI team.
This event is entirely free and open to all Milwaukee community members. Snacks will be provided. Registration is required. The in-person event is for guests 18 years or older.
