On Tuesday, Oct. 10, people gathered to tell about their experiences with the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility at a Mass Story Lab event at Marquette University. Six people whose lives and families have been affected by MSDF testified to the unjust practices and shameful conditions at the facility, a holding site for people alleged to have violated probation or parole.

At least 17 people have died inside MSDF since it opened in 2001. Read more about the stories shared at the Mass Story Lab event in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel here.
