Project Goals Initial project goals that were agreed on by the Advisory Committee and can inform evaluations of the project included: 1. Develop evidence-based, specific, actionable recommendations about ways to change Department of Corrections (DOC) practice and Wisconsin law, which currently revokes supervision for technical violations, in ways that protect and promote health. 2. Expand the current discourse on people incarcerated without new criminal convictions but for breaking rules of supervision, with an evidence-based HIA that captures the public health impact and addresses racial inequities of current policy. 3. Inform Department of Corrections staff, state-level policymakers and their staff in Wisconsin, and the public about health and equity effects of making these changes to current DOC practice and state law. 4. Bring together criminal justice reform advocates, researchers, public health professionals, and students interested in understanding and addressing how policy on people incarcerated without new criminal convictions but for breaking rules of supervision can protect, promote or harm health. 5. Contribute to building a productive working relationship and information sharing between Department of Corrections and criminal justice reform advocates. Process Evaluation Plan The project team can develop and implement an internal evaluation to assess the process of conducting this project. The evaluation would focus on understanding whether the project met its intended goals, whether it adhered to the project workplan, ways in which stakeholders were engaged, challenges, opportunities for improvement, and lessons learned.

Participants may include: Human Impact Partners, WISDOM, EX-Prisoners Organizing, Advisory Committee members, as available.
