Our presentation is on Hope, Humanity and Holistic Care regarding the social justice movement and history surrounding women and policies and procedures in the Wisconsin Women's Correctional System. My co-presenter again this year is Madeline Martin a social justice artist whose work details the lives of these strong, resilient women. She is an MFA candidate at UW-Milwaukee and her work is extraordinary. There will also be the opportunity to hear from formerly incarcerated women.
We will have our resource and networking table again. Thank you to the University of Wisconsin...Alice F. Pauser
