Retweeted by Governor Mary FallinWhat an amazing voice + what an incredible champion she has been. -@holly_harris speaking of Gov. Fallin's dedication to #cjremform.We know that children with a parent that is incarcerated are 5x more likely to enter the corrections system. We must break this cycle.If we don't address these issues we will see an increase in our prison populations + it will cost the state $2B.#WomenUnshackled #cjreformWe passed a measure requiring all offenders to receive a risk + needs assessment + develop and individual case plan upon release.Ok has been working on solutions to reduce the incarceration rate.We are #2 in the nation for incarceration of men + women.#WomenUnshackledI signed an order "banning the box" that indicates that a person has served time in prison. #WomenUnshackled #banthebox #cjreformOne of the things we see from people who are coming out of the prison systems is trouble entering the workforce. Finding a job is difficult.Only 3.2% of Mental Health Court program participants end up going to prison. #WomenUnshackledPeople who go through drug courts have a lower rate of going into prisons. -GMF #WomenUnshackledThe systematic risk assessment has been successful in putting people in community based services to keep them from entering into correctionsWomen in Recovery is a remarkable program that pays women offenders for success. A unique public-private partnership. #WomenUnshackledWe want to restore their hope and their self-worth. -GMF #WomenUnshackledA lot the reports have I read say there is a multi-generational cycle of incarceration. We're trying to break that cycle. #WomenUnshackledWe want to people in programs that we know work, not programs we hope will work. -GMF #WomenUnshackledSystems of Care provide services to people in corrections to take of the needs of women in our criminal justice system.#WomenUnshackledWe are prioritizing treatment for women in prison who are pregnant; who have children. #WomenUnshackled69% of women in prison in OK have a had an actively managed mental health issue. Compared with 44% of men. -GMF #WomenUnshackledVast majority of women (80%) who go into OK prisons are there because of non-violent offenses. -GMF #WomenUnshackledThe gap has continued to widen, since 2012 the rate of female incarceration has increased 30%. -GMFWe need to make sure our state's most precious resource is protected: our families. #WomenUnshackled @USJusticeActionWe need to be investing in programs that are successful. #WomenUnshackled is not the answer and the best option for every offender. For our nonviolent + low level offenders there are better options. -GMF @GovMaryFallin is live on issues facing incarcerated women - thank you for shining a bright light on this issue!
