Ohio State University - Issue 1 One Year Later
The State of Criminal Justice Reform in Ohio and Nationwide
Join us for a look at the past and future of drug and criminal justice reforms in the State of Ohio and beyond
After Ohio voters in November 2018 soundly rejected a criminal justice reform ballot initiative known as Issue 1, both proponents and opponents of the initiative proclaimed their commitment to enacting at least some of its elements through the legislative process. Public officials, including many who opposed Issue 1, expressed interest in various reform proposals that would soften punitive approaches to drug addiction and non-violent drug crimes and would increase treatment options for those suffering from substance use disorder.
Now, one year later, the story of reform is still in development, with the Ohio General Assembly considering a number of criminal justice reform proposals but no changes enacted into law as of now. Meanwhile, significant sentencing and prison reforms were enacted at the federal level, which has helped propel state level reforms in other states. Please join us for a forum where we will closely examine the past and future outlook of criminal justice reforms in the State of Ohio and explore the state of criminal justice reform at the national level.
There is no cost to attend this event. Seating is limited and registration is required.
