Remembering Ramiah Whiteside

“When you show me what forgiveness looks like,

and then you walk through what accountability looks like,

I am no longer the same person.” 


These powerful words are from our last town hall with Ramiah Whiteside.

As Associate Director of Ex-incarcerated People Organizing, Ramiah Whiteside was a strong advocate for restorative justice and our partner in coalition to transform Wisconsin’s carceral system.

Known as a peacemaker, Ramiah had a unique ability to to speak to anyone and was able to move people regardless of partisan issues.

Our hearts go out to his family and friends. Rest in power, Ramiah.
