There's been an update to the Safer at Home order.

Governor Tony Evers today extended the Safer at Home order from April 24, 2020 to 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 26, 2020, or until a superseding order is issued. The order implements some new measures to ensure safety and support the progress we've made in containing COVID-19, but also allows certain activities to start up again. The order is available here: https://bit.ly/2KeA9BO

“A few weeks ago, we had a pretty grim outlook for what COVID-19 could mean for our state, but because of the efforts of all of you, Safer at Home is working. That said, we aren't out of the woods just yet,” said Gov. Evers.

How to Make Courthouse Walls ‘More Porous’ | The Crime Report

In this recent article from The Crime Report, two members of the CJC Executive Committee, Tom Reed and John Chisholm, describe efforts to change our approach to criminal justice in Milwaukee County, including our work to #RethinkJails through The Safety and Justice Challenge.

In Milwaukee, DA John Chisholm and Public Defender Tom Reed have teamed up to transform local justice from an ‘adversarial’ model to a system oriented to preventing harm and involving a network of community services. Could it work elsewhere?
