It's time for Wisconsin to get smart on justice  

Imprisonment is a brutal and costly response to crime, which traumatizes incarcerated people and hurts families and communities. It should be the last option, not the first. Yet Wisconsin has the highest incarceration rate in the United States. Decades of bad policies have torn families apart and cost our state billions.

The ACLU of Wisconsin's Campaign for Smart Justice is an unprecedented, multi-year effort to reduce Wisconsin's jail and prison populations by 50 percent and to eliminate racial disparities in the criminal justice system. With the support of community partners and organizations from across the political spectrum, we are pushing for smart policy solutions, advancing the leadership of people directly impacted by Wisconsin’s criminal justice system, and making sure politicians understand the urgency of smart justice reform.

The ACLU of Wisconsin's Campaign for Smart Justice is working with the coalition “Close MSDF” to close Milwaukee’s Secure Detention Facility, a state-run prison located in the city of Milwaukee.  Find more information about this campaign here:
