Wednesday, February 24, 2-3:15pm, this on-line event requires advance registration

Ohio has a long history of criminal justice reform and drug sentencing reform, yet few can be pleased that Ohio still has the 12th highest incarceration rate in the country and one of the highest rates of overdose deaths. With the passage of H.B. 1 and the failure of S.B. 3 at the end of 2020, many are left wondering what can and cannot be achieved through legislative reforms in Ohio.

Please join us for a discussion of Ohio’s recent reform history, what we might expect in the near future, and how research and experience in other states can inform reform efforts in the Buckeye State.


• Sara Andrews, executive director of the Ohio Criminal Sentencing Commission
