WORKING FOR SYSTEMIC CHANGE IN THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM AND SUPPORTING EX-FELONS RIGHT TO WORK
As explained in the articles "All the King's Horses and All the King's Men," and "System Failure," our criminal justice system is in systemic failure. Your cases are being decided by rooms full of 25 year old law clerks. Article III of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that in Federal Courts a life tenured judge will review and decide the case.
The FBI has felony records on 30,000,000 living Americans. Over 68,000,000 have criminal records. In Ohio alone there are 905 Civil Disabilities preventing ex-felons, who have fully paid their debt to society, from working in multiple careers. Relegating 10% of the U.S. population to second-class citizen status is directly affecting 20% of the U.S.economy.
A.) An overall mission of educating the public regarding misinformation about ex-felons accepted as "common knowledge" by most citizens;
1.) Lobby for the number of judges to be tied to the census to improve the criminal justice system by reducing the number of cases Judges have on their Docket;
2.) Lobby for the repeal and modification of Civil Disabilities imposed on ex-felons. Oppose the re-election of politicians whose platform is to increase sentences and to implement civil disabilities for ex-felons;
3.) Creating a voting block of ex-felons for the purpose of reforming civil disability laws, opposing some politicians and electing ex-felons to public office;
4.) Creating a separate Division that uses excess donations to help long-term imprisoned (10 years +), to obtain housing, food, jobs and community support when released.
