    1s good insights in these responses. We’d love to have you at the next MOSES meeting which is the 1st Saturday of the month at First Congregational Church in Madison.

    You can write to me if you need more information.


  2. I am writing you in regards to my son, who is an inmate a minimal facility located in Wisconsin. He’s been in incarcerated since June, 2001.
    When the laws of incarceration change from parole eligibility to truth- to -sentencing. He was sentenced under truth- to -sentencing. We have worked with the Wisconsin Innocent Project which brought us only so far as to DNA testing (Which was proven that he was not the suspect in a homicide case) and eyewitness account(individual uncooperative). We need help and advice on what to do next and how to go about the next step for justice.

    I would like to be involved in your group. I had tried to start up a group back in 2003 and DOC illegally it down but I had no money to fight it because I put up everything I had to get it started. I even became homeless because of it.
    The DOC is a industry that needs a major overhaul!!!
    I am a Christian, if it wasn’t for God I would not be alive now because all I have lost over the years so many others have committed suicide.
    So I would love to help and I just need to know what I can do!!!
