EXPO (EX-incarcerated People Organizing) Associate Director Sarah Ferber and WISDOM Director David Liners have been appointed to Gov. Tony Evers’ Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Policy Advisory Council. Even before the inauguration, WISDOM and EXPO leaders met multiple times with various members of the Transition Team. They also meet regularly with newly appointed Corrections Administrator Carr and Parole Commissioner John Tate.

EXPO Organizer Peggy West is quoted as saying, “When you’re talking about reform and correcting things that are wrong, it’s important to have attorneys and people like that, but it’s more important to have people who actually have lived experiences.”
