Bridge to Somewhere Cover

Release date: 1-14-2013
Authored by: Gabriella Celeste, JD, Director, Child Policy

In 2011, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed House Bill 86, landmark legislation for juvenile justice  reforms based on an understanding of evidence-based practices and adolescent development research. This legislative achievement was the result of a collaborative policy change model that relied upon critical engagement among various experts, practitioners, key stakeholders, advocates and policymakers. The case study is intended to be a learning tool for those interested in understanding a collaborative approach to policy change and potentially pursing similar policy change efforts in the future.
