Fellows will serve as ambassadors for the mission and vision of Innovation Ohio Education Fund, and they will play a key role in helping the organization fulfill its commitment to racial justice.

The project will conduct research into current criminal justice and legal policies passed or pending in the Statehouse that impact, harm, or support Black women and girls. It will also explore policy solutions to promote justice, develop messaging materials to amplify our findings, and engage in public education efforts around the issue, our findings, and our recommendations.
