In Wisconsin, there’s a network of people of faith and congregations who are working for stronger families, safer communities, and healthier lives.
Their bold plan – and the title of the petition Pastor Michael Mueller started on the Groundswell platform – is Shrink Wisconsin’s Prison Population by 50%.
And next week – on Tuesday, February 12th – Pastor Mueller is delivering the petition to Governor Scott Walker himself. In his words:
As people of faith and moral calling, we can no longer tolerate our neighbors suffering after being imprisoned because of treatable mental health issues and substance abuse. We call on our representatives to help heal our communities with funding for treatment alternatives and diversions for our neighbors.
It’s an uplifting and redemptive vision of giving people a second chance that could only come out of the faith community.
Pastor Mueller and the WISDOM network in Wisconsin are living a belief in the dignity and infinite worth of each and every human life – that we’re all part of a sacred community, called to work for justice and liberation, to see the triumph of love and hope over fear.
We praise this transformative and powerful campaign in Wisconsin and hope you will support Pastor Mueller and people of faith in Wisconsin.
