START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good

Exciting news, everyone!


AB-136, aka April's Law Wisconsin, is being heard in the Committee on Criminal Justice and Corrections!  We need as many people as possible to either come to the hearing or to submit their written testimony to support this piece of Legislation.


The hearing will take place on Wednesday, October 19,2011 @ 9:30am in room 300 Northeast State Capitol.  Let me know if you'd like to carpool.



Just to let you know, the Racine County Sheriff's office is also supporting this.



If you can't make it, please send me an email, so I can submit it - or you may send it to the members of the Committee on Criminal Justice & Corrections, which is hearing the Bill to vote on it.  Here is a list of those who are on the committee.  Please remember to have add your name and pertinent info, and thank them for their time.


I'm hoping to get as many people or letters in, because the more support we have, the better chance it has to come to a vote rather than dropped on the floor.


Thank you all for your kind support, and please don't forget to submit your letters for support, and if you can, please join me at the hearing!  Just to ensure that we will be there on time, I'll probably be leaving around 6:30AM to ensure I can be there, because it looks as if AB-136 is the first billing for this hearing.


Please keep me posted!

As a retired NYS Parole Officer I supervised the Sex Offender Units for two NY counties. I did this for many years. I cannot stress enough the importance of keeping our children safe from these predators. It is the responsibility of everyone, parents, friends, local government as well as state government to support any and all legislation that will help prevent child abuse of all kinds. I hope you do the right thing.....Franco Jason Di palma

one serious problem with sexual abuse is it acts in secrecy and spreads quickly much like a cancer. If it is not exposed to light and stopped it will often infect generations and generations, infecting more and more.

Perpetrators need to be caught ,stopped isolated and RE-educated. often they are victims themselves.

Hi Lika, I've shared this via your e card which came from Nancy. A very important issue.

Children are very vulnerable to predators. They need Us to make sure they are not preyed upon.. Please add your voice to this vital issue.. Thanks Barbara
