Values & Vision
The Ohio Fair Courts Alliance is a diverse network of organizations, faith leaders and concerned citizens dedicated to creating a court system that exemplifies and protects equity, fairness and justice for all. To achieve our goal, we are exploring ways to limit the influence of special interests and money that is increasingly politicizing our courts. The courts are often the last refuge for protecting our rights. They should be a place where Ohioans receive fair solutions to problems in our communities and in our state.
We have identified numerous challenges to the fairness and impartiality of our courts. Over the next two years, our working group intends to focus on:
Passing stronger campaign finance laws and rules that prevent judges from hearing the cases of their contributors
Raising the public’s awareness of the importance of judges and judicial elections
Building a stronger coalition that will deepen our impact across the state
