Felony Records and Long Sentences Hurt the Economy
Oklahoma’s criminal justice system has constricted the state’s economic growth by removing people from the workforce, subjecting them to harsh sentences, and then imposing significant barriers to their return to work.

Oklahoma’s criminal justice system should be focused on keeping communities safe, but instead at every stage of the system, it fails to rehabilitate, protect survivors, or strengthen community ties.
Families Pay the Price
The impact of incarceration extends beyond the person locked behind bars. Oklahoma’s punitive approach to criminal justice and harsh reliance on incarceration is separating families and harming Oklahoma’s children.
