Senator Harris Dodd and Senator Taylor

Speak Out Against Expanded Strip Search Bill

 

MADISON- Sen. Nikiya Harris Dodd and Sen. Lena Taylor, along with community members and state and local elected officials, will hold a press conference on Monday, November 2, highlighting their concerns with Senate Bill 248, which expands the use of strip searches to any individual who is arrested and detained.  With the increasing cases of police brutality across the nation coupled with the disparities at which black males in Milwaukee are arrested, this bill will further denigrate the black community and lead to increased harm.

WHEN: Monday, November 2, 2015, 11:30am

 WHERE: Outside of Milwaukee 5th District Police Station, 2920 N. 4th Street
