Moses Update


MOSES members continue to advocate for changes which could permit Wisconsin’s prison population to be legitimately reduced by half by the end of 2015:

  • On December 17th there was a rally and press conference, followed by a march to the Governor’s office, to point out the injustice being done to those individuals who were sentenced prior to the Truth in Sentencing Law enactment in 2000.  The sentences imposed by their judges assumed that they would be eligible for time off for good behavior or parole long before they served the full term.  Instead, most of them are still in prison, in spite of having met all the requirements for release set when they were sentenced.
  • On January 7th, a MOSES subcommittee (including two MCC members) met with Dane County Executive Joe Parisi and Sheriff  Dave Mahoney to learn more about a proposed new jail.  The group learned that the plan would be to rectify some of the current safety issues and expand therapeutic programming opportunities through the creation of  replacement space, without increasing jail capacity.  That seems to be in concert with the WISDOM 11X15 campaign.  Both of the elected officials appreciated the interest of MOSES as well as some of the suggestions for TAD (Treatment and Diversion) approaches which were made.  MOSES offered to host a public forum to encourage additional dialogue once the county has formalized their proposal.


As noted in these two examples, MOSES offers opportunities for those of us who would otherwise be on the sidelines to actively participate in making a difference for those who have no voice.  If you would like more information or wish to become an individual member of MOSES, contact Ralph Jackson (798-3068 or (RJacksonLLC@tds.net).
