About Us

The Wisconsin Justice League, Inc.’s objective is to be a companion organization with the primary purpose of addressing structural issues in the criminal justice systems such as racial profiling, police brutality, over-criminalization, mass incarceration, and recidivism.

We are a non-profit organization according to IRS code 501(c)3 with an active status.

Our Mission

The mission of the Wisconsin Justice League is to reform bail requirements and pretrial detention, ensure investigative resources both pre-charging and post, review excessive charging practices and exposed penalties and sanctions, change mandatory sentencing laws, help eradicate the acceptance of solitary confinement as well as the criteria of expungement, reform the juvenile criminal system, remove arbitrary supervisions of parolees and promote advocacy for supervision by imposing supervisors to prevent said parolees from going back to jail unnecessarily, resolve the prison complex and its capitalization and exploitation of free labor and guaranteed supply chains.

Our work continues

Due to citizens of Wisconsin remaining exposed to pretrial detention and surveillance, police practices, disproportionate sentencing, prosecutorial and/or judicial abuse which includes failed drug policies that ignore public health concerns while putting an unprecedented number of people behind bars. The Wisconsin Justice League is working to end the sheer number of prisoners in the justice system through both litigation and advocacy. By fighting for statewide reform at various government levels, the state can right the wrong before the problem worsens. 

The Wisconsin Justice League focuses its work on the front end of the criminal legal system—from policing to sentencing— seeking to end excessively harsh criminal justice policies that result in mass incarceration, over-criminalization, and racial injustice and stand in the way of a fair and equal society. Wisconsin Justice League aims to normalize the Wisconsin people of color incarceration rate closer to national standards, which is unfortunately currently ten times the rate of white incarceration.

“With the formation of the Wisconsin Justice League and its six initiatives, we plan to align with community advocacy programs to transform the prison system by advocating for the implementation of better procedures, preventing racial charging and sentencing disparities, while championing for the quality of advocacy.”

Timothy Baldwin, Interim Board President
