John T. Chisholm, Milwaukee County district attorney since 2007, will speak on “Justice Reinvestment” from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Rooms 107/117 at Milwaukee Area Technical College’s West Allis Campus, 1200 S. 71st St. He will discuss how communities can do a better job of reducing prison admissions, so the state can redirect the cost savings back to the communities to invest in neighborhood programs.
His presentation is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a question-and-answer period. For more information, email Jacquelyn Oliveira, MATC social science instructor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
