About Us


About FTRR

Fair Treatment Reform and Re-entry is a nonprofit prisoner rights advocacy group specializing in parole reform, fair laws, fair treatment and re-entry. We are not a law group and cannot give legal advice. We do not charge for our services but donations are greatly appreciated. 



Advocating. Fair Laws. Parole Reform. Re-entry.




I spent 25 years incarcerated and maxed out January 24, 2011. Shortly after release I was elected as President Of Ohio Cure then President of In The Name Of Justice until I organized Fair Treatment Reform and Re-entry. I wanted to form this organization to help a friend named Gerald Loomer who I knew was innocent but sadly died in prison. My main focus with this organization is to help the incarcerated who are stuck by cruel tactics of the parole board, assist in helping with medical issues and other unfair treatment. We also work with re-entry. 



I became a part of FTRR while researching how to bring awareness to my fiance's case- & joined FTRR during protests & events to learn & to also help those affected by incarceration. I was a follower/supporter & became a part of the executive board as Vice President. Recently, I was nominated to become President & I'm excited for this journey to keep passionately fighting for those who deserve a second chance!  Our Parole/Prison system is in much need of change & we will NOT stop til inmates are treated as human beings & not as animals! Many are wrongfully convicted, railroaded in the midst of corruption, old law & less likely to reoffend, and lots are convicted juveniles- no matter their case- they're continuously being flopped beyond their sentence! It's time to bring awareness to the malpractices within our Judicial system & I'm very anxious to do all I can to bring that awareness to society- the ones who have forgot- WE have NOT!!!! I believe in second chances- fairness- and that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect! We all make mistakes- we're all criminals, some just never have been caught! Thank you everyone for your continuous dedication- together we must stand- UNITED as ONE!!! Together we can make noise!!



Hi, my name is Heather Warnick. I am currently the Vice President and a member of the Judiciary Committee for Fair Treatment Reform and Re-entry. I was introduced to this organization by my fiancé who is incarcerated at Mansfield Correctional in Mansfield, Ohio. He is a victim of the unjust and unfair practices of the Ohio Parole Board. When they gave him a 120 month flop for nothing more than “The Nature of the Crime”, I knew something needed to be done but honestly I felt so helpless and had no idea where to turn. My goal with this organization is simply to help others like myself be an advocate for their loved ones. Get their voices heard and help provide a pathway to re-entry that is fair, just, and follows guidelines. I believe in our mission and I believe that while the crime can never change… PEOPLE ABSOLUETLY DO!



Several years ago, a friend was giving a continuance and I was heartbroken. I couldn’t believe that would happen. I was going to find someone to help me fight this, because it wasn’t right.  I stumbled upon James and Amy having a meeting concerning this issue and knew right then I had found someone to help. Soon after, James formed FTRR and I knew I had to be a part of it.  I have learned so much and met so many wonderful people being part of FTRR. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s been a rough road to follow but so worth the struggle.  I know where I belong.

TASHA MCGOWAN Social Media Manager


Hi my name is Tasha McGowan and I am the Social Media Liason for FTRR.  I became aware of FTRR thru my best friend who has been incarcerated since the age of 17 and is currently serving his sentence at Marion Correctional Institution- he was looking for someone that was willing to speak up on his behalf. The more I got involved with FTRR the more i appreciate everything they stand for.  With my position I can reach out to hundreds of people thru Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.  I look forward to fighting the fight in order to get our bill passed and the people that we help along the way.
