Faced with the second highest incarceration rate in the nation, Oklahoma’s criminal justice system is at a crossroads. One challenge facing the Sooner State is overcriminalization, which puts unsuspecting Oklahomans in jeopardy—and possibly even handcuffs—while doing little to reduce crime or increase public safety.
On March 8, join the Charles Koch Institute, the Oklahoma Council for Public Affairs, and a panel of distinguished experts to discuss recommendations for reducing overcriminalization as part of Oklahoma’s broader justice reform efforts.
The event takes place at 7p on Wednesday evening.
