Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin and HELP of Door County collaborated on an event in Sturgeon Bay to help raise awareness of crime victims’ rights in the state. The groups displayed silhouettes highlighting the various rights included under Marsy’s Law in conjunction with HELP of Door County’s Walk with Me event, which marked the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
“Domestic Violence Awareness Month is such an important opportunity to raise awareness of domestic violence and show support for the victims we serve,” said Milly Gonzales, executive director of HELP of Door County. “It is so important for these victims to understand the rights available to them in the legal process, and we were grateful to partner with Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin to help raise awareness of these rights.”
The eight silhouettes on display in Sturgeon Bay’s Martin Park included a short version of a constitutional right included in Marsy’s Law, the state crime victims’ constitutional amendment that was adopted with overwhelming support during the April 2020 election.
