You have the right to NOT remain silent

We believe in the human dignity of
formerly and currently incarcerated people,
and recognize they come from, and are
part of our communities.

We believe men and women with conviction
and arrest records should be viewed as
valued human beings, members of
families, and assets to communities.

Who we are

Since 2014, EXPO (EX-incarcerated People Organizing) works to end mass incarceration, eliminate all forms of structural discrimination against formerly incarcerated people, and restore formerly incarcerated people to full participation in the life of our communities.

FREE

freedom comes when we reclaim it

The FREE Campaign is focused on the unique issues of women who have experienced incarceration.

The FREE Campaign was founded in 2016 by women who are members of EXPO Wisconsin, when they began to notice the lack of discussion of women’s particular incarceration challenges.

Support Our Cause

People in our communities without direct experience with incarceration are often ill-informed of the negative, and catastrophic, effects on earnings and employment, physical and mental health, housing and education, and family well-being created and perpetuated by the carceral system. Through our advocacy work in local and state government, EXPO creates space, opportunity, and support for system-impacted individuals to raise their voices about the systemic and institutional harm of the incarceration. In the words of one of our organizers, EXPO’s work “shines a light of awareness and truth where others refuse to acknowledge.”

It's time to Unlock the Vote!

Courts and Department of Corrections make very clear a person who has been sentenced for a felony conviction loses their right to vote. But, The same is not done when a sentence is completed in full and rights are restored!
