This week, Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin and Bolton Refuge House joined together for an event displaying silhouettes in downtown Eau Claire to help raise awareness of crime victims’ rights in Wisconsin. The silhouettes highlight various rights included under Wisconsin’s recently adopted crime victims’ rights constitutional amendment known as Marsy’s Law. Bolton Refuge House has used silhouettes in the past to memorialize victims of domestic-related homicides.
Nine silhouettes were placed on display in downtown Eau Claire on Barstow Street. Each silhouette includes a short version of a constitutional right included in Marsy’s Law, which was adopted during the April 2020 election. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ABOUT THE LAW.
