Call In Day – Green Bay Correctional Institute

On Monday, November 25th 2019 we are asking you to participate in our statewide Call-In Day for Green Bay Correctional Institution. We are asking everyone to place three calls. One to the governor, one to their state representative, and their state senator.

Script for calling legislators: Hello, my name is {your name} from {your city} and I am calling about the Green Bay Correctional Institute. I am calling to ask for your support in decommissioning this facility. Additionally, I would like to have your commitment to reducing Wisconsin’s prison population. Wisconsin does not need more prisons–we need less. I request Wisconsin invests in programs that will uplift Wisconsinites and rebuild our communities, not build more prisons. Thank you.

o Governor Evers, 608-888-1665
o Call the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-362-9472 to find and contact your state senator and representative. You can also go online and find our who your legislators are by going here.
