Tell the House - People Not Prisons: SB 3 Must Pass!
TAKE ACTION NOW
Time is ticking! We only have a few weeks left to pass Senate Bill 3 this legislative session and we need your help! Senate Bill 3 reclassifies some low-level, drug possession crimes from felonies to misdemeanors to ensure that people struggling with addiction receive treatment rather than jail time.
Tell the members of the House Criminal Justice Committee to pass Senate Bill 3! This legislation (and others) are needed to address our mass incarceration crisis. And yes, it is a crisis. It’s past time for our lawmakers to legislate with compassion, not criminalization.
For the past seven years, drug possession is the number one reason people enter Ohio’s overcrowded prisons. The War On Drugs comes at great cost to people across Ohio, especially to Black and Brown families, and other communities of color. (Not to mention the enormous burden on Ohio, plus its taxpayers!)
Send a message to the members of the House Criminal Justice Committee urging them to vote YES on SB 3.
