When Wisconsin residents head to the polls for the April 2020 election, they will face an important question, do they support additional rights for Wisconsin crime victims?
For anyone who has been the victim of a crime or seen a loved one become a victim, the answer is obvious. As a survivor and a mother to survivors, I know how important victims’ rights are throughout the difficult legal process. I’ve seen firsthand how limited victims’ rights are in our current legal system, and the need to level the playing field between victims and the accused.

That’s why I support the proposal to amend the state constitution to strengthen victims’ rights, commonly known as Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin. I believe that this amendment will make a huge difference in the lives of crime victims, granting them simple rights like the right to timely information about their own case or the right to be heard throughout the legal process.
I hope you’ll join me in voting yes on the proposed crime victims’ constitutional amendment and help give victims the equal rights they deserve.
