Trauma in Our Community – Schedule

Sharing on behalf of the Comprehensive Injury Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin

2020 was a challenging year … a tumultuous time that is behind us, yet its impact and effects are yet to be over. The fifth annual Trauma in Our Community Conference takes a close look at these traumatic events – the pandemic, racial inequalities, civil discord – examining the implications for our community as well as our nation and our world … all while exploring insights into ways for us to see and be the light in the darkness.

Join UWM and Rogers Behavioral Health on June 17 for a day of virtual engagement and collaboration as we work together to bravely rebuild, reconcile and recover. CIC Director Terri deRoon-Cassini will be presenting.

We believe survivors.

We Believe Survivors.

Today is Denim Day! Denim Day is day to support survivors of sexual violence. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Denim Day campaign began in 1999 after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a r**e conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who r**ed her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.

Inmate Populations Drop During Pandemic, But What Comes Next?

Milwaukee County was highlighted in recent research from Wisconsin Policy Forum, covering the decline in Wisconsin’s prison and jail populations.

Since 2016, local stakeholders have worked together to prevent unnecessary jail use through The Safety and Justice Challenge. The CJC also convened system and community partners to introduce practices aimed at curbing COVID-19's spread. This included efforts to safely reduce Milwaukee's jail census.

After years on a mostly upward trend, local jail and state prison populations have plummeted by thousands of inmates during the last year of pandemic. The impact of this drop – in line with other states, but easily the largest on record in Wisconsin – merits careful study and thoughtful consider...
