We Did It: 780 and 781 Passed

Earlier this year, we set out to mobilize Oklahomans to vote for reforms to make our criminal justice system smarter and our communities safer.

Well, we did it!

I’m delighted to inform you that, with your support, we passed State Questions 780 and 781. Help us spread the great news on Facebook and Twitter.

Now that the initiatives have passed, we’ll be able to make a real difference in the lives of many people and families in our communities. By reclassifying certain low-level offenses as misdemeanors, we’ll be able to safely reduce the prison population, and save taxpayer dollars. We’ll then return those savings to local communities for investment into rehabilitation programs like mental health care, substance abuse treatment, and job training.

Help us spread the word about last night’s big victory by sharing this graphic on social media.

Thank you for helping us reach this final milestone and for being with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have done it without you.
