Ohio has a long history of criminal justice reform and drug sentencing reform, and 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.

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.
