From David Liners, state director,  WISDOM, WI

Judge Wilbur W. Warren III signs on to “11x15” goal at CUSH’s Fire of Faith meeting.

At CUSH’s October 25 public meeting in Kenosha WI, Judge Wilbur W. Warren III joined those pledging to support “11x15.” The initiative calls for reducing the state’s population of those incarcerated by half – to 11,000 – by 2015.

Prison reform is a key issue for WISDOM, which represents several Gamaliel affiliates in Wisconsin. They cite a $1.3 billion corrections cost that accounts for a greater portion of the state’s budget than the university system.
