Demand justice for Kelley Williams-Bolar

Jan 28 2011

UPDATE: In September 2011, Ohio Governor John Kasich granted Kelley Williams-Bolar executive clemency, reducing her felony convictions to first-degree misdemeanors.

Kelley Williams-Bolar tried to give her kids a better life by sending her children to the nearby majority-White school district where her father lives — and she went to jail for it. Now her career as a teacher is in jeopardy.

Real justice requires that the punishment fit the crime; what Williams-Bolar is facing is clearly over the top. Call on Ohio Governor John Kasich to publicly denounce her punishment and also do all he can to right this wrong.

This campaign has concluded.
