Criminal Justice

Keeping communities safe through fair processes, fair laws, and just outcomes.


  • Ensure the punishment fits the crime and that our criminal justice system maximizes public safety with its limited resources.
  • Fight against the unjust practice of civil asset forfeiture that allows law enforcement to take property without a conviction.
  • Fight the overuse and misuse of the criminal law.
  • Replace Ohio’s failing cash bail system with proven risk-assessment tools that provide a fairer, more efficient way to keep Ohio’s communities safe and secure. Download the handout to learn why bail reform matters.

“Our current criminal justice system sends too many people to prison for too long and doesn’t address the underlying problems. We can make our communities safer, cut spending, and help people become contributing members of society.” - @DanielJDew
