Stokes CLI Public Safety Dialogue
April 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Since October, the Stokes Fellows have taken a deep dive into five civic issues. Alongside the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center scholars, they designed forums to educate the community on these issues and guide understanding of how the community can collaborate on solutions. All free and open to the community.
Join the Stokes Civic Leadership Institue Fellows & Cuyahoga Community College for a panel discussion about The Ohio Neighborhood Safety, Drug Treatment, and Rehabilitation Amendment.
Panelists include Crystal Bryant, the Director of the Office of Reentry, DaMareo Cooper, the Director of the Ohio Organizing Collaborative, and Michael O’Malley, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor.
The proposed constitutional amendment is meant to reduce the number of people incarcerated in state prisons for low-level drug possession crimes or non-criminal probation violations. It will redirect resulting state savings toward increased community-based addiction treatment and support programs for youth and adults.
