On Thursday, Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform will officially kick off a campaign to reform our state’s criminal justice system -- by taking the issue directly to the voters, starting with collecting signatures to ensure State Questions 780 and 781 are on the ballot in November.
Acting together, we can reduce the prison population, save money and make Oklahoma communities healthier and stronger by addressing the root causes of crime and helping people who have committed low-level offenses turn their lives around.
I hope you’ll join us for one of the rallies this week to get started—one in Oklahoma City and the other in Tulsa. Here are the details:
Oklahoma City Rally for Criminal Justice Reform
WHERE: Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform HQ, 1330 N. Classen Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73106
WHEN: March 10, 2016 10:00 AM
WHAT: Rally for criminal justice reform, featuring special guests including Oklahoma City Chief of Police Bill Citty, former Governor of Oklahoma Brad Henry, CEO of Tapstone Energy Tom Ward, and Executive Director of the ACLU of Oklahoma Ryan Kiesel.

To qualify for the 2016 ballot, we have to turn in more than 65,000 signatures per petition from Oklahomans who support a smarter criminal justice system -- and we hope you’ll join us at one of the events next week to make your signature one of the first. By beginning to collect signatures, we’re taking one big step toward giving Oklahoma voters a say on our justice system.
Thanks for your support. Now let’s go out and win this thing!
Kris Steele
Chairman, Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform
P.S. -- If you can’t make one of the events this week, don’t worry! We’re sending organizers and volunteers across the state to start collecting signatures, and we’ll let you know when they’re in your area -- just sign up here to get updates.
