Welcome to the Criminalizing Poverty Blog

The Criminalizing Poverty Webpage and Blog was started by Office of the Ohio Public Defender's Racial Justice Initiative in order to raise awareness about how the court system targets low-income individuals for costs, fees, and fines that they are generally unable to pay, and to provide resources to defenders to help attack these practices.
