Our focus for this assembly is criminal justice reform, in particular, Measure 11—a 1994 ballot measure requiring mandatory minimum sentences—and two key reform bills in the current Oregon Legislative session: House Bill 2002 and Senate Bill 401.
Come to learn more about these bills, hear personal stories, and take action!
We will be joined at the assembly by two special guests:
Edward Jones, a retired judge of the Multnomah County Circuit Court who wrote a recent op-ed in support of Measure 11 reform.
"Ballot Measure 11 is far from perfect. Improvement is possible. These bills provide exactly the reasonable reforms that are needed. They deserve our support."
Aaron Knott, chief of staff for Multnomah County’s District Attorney Mike Schmidt.
