Introducing the Newest Member of the Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin Team
I’m Ashley Albright and I’m the newest member of the Marsy’s Law team in Wisconsin! I graduated from UW-Madison in December of 2017 with a double major in Social Welfare and Legal Studies and a certificate in Criminal Justice. In college, I volunteered at Domestic Abuse Intervention Services working on a crisis line for domestic abuse survivors, as well providing child care at the Canopy Center for children who had experienced abuse and neglect.
I’m extremely excited to have received the opportunity to work as a field representative for Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin. As a survivor of sexual assault, I’ve personally experienced some of the issues which Marsy’s Law is attempting to remedy. After having an event take place which rendered me powerless, I know firsthand how difficult it is to stand by while a case is being made that doesn’t take the emotions of the victim into account.
Although my experience was incredibly traumatic, I believe that as a member of the Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin campaign, my personal understanding of the importance of this effort will make me that much more driven towards helping to make it a reality. I am very excited to work towards a more equitable allocation of rights for victims and perpetrators of crimes and look forward to what is to come.
