About Us

Our Mission Statement

Fair Treatment Reform & Re-entry's mission is to raise public awareness about the criminal justice system through education and dissemination of information. We advocate for a fair, just, and transparent parole process and encourage State lawmakers to support these goals. We believe in the power of inmates to change and think they should have a fair chance at justice. Fair Treatment Reform & Re-entry also focuses on assisting those released from prison with effective re-entry strategies by providing information and resources.

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. 

BOARD MEMBERS

JAMES KRONENBERGER Founder

I spent 25yrs 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 have been with FTRR for 3 years. I was first asked to be Secretary then a year later I was moved up to Vice President and then nominated to President. My husband was incarcerated as a juvenile 26 years ago. When he had his second parole hearing and got flopped 6 more years I knew I had to stand up and do something especially since the board had someone else's file mixed in with his.  I turned the pain of my husband not coming home into something positive by being the voice of the voiceless. I spend endless hours advocating for parole reform, fair treatment and the release of juvenile lifers, as well as advocating for inmates and families who are in our same situation. I also run 3 prison wife support groups to help women cope with having their loved one incarcerated.

I heard about FTRR through Facebook a little over a year ago through Candace-our President. I admired her for doing what was right and fighting for those who deserve second chances. I became involved because I am passionate about second chances and fairness in all that we do everyday. Being from Cleveland it was hard to make every Columbus event-however if there was a will-there was a way! This organization has schooled me more than ever and I'm dedicated to fight the good fight alongside some courageous fighters! I encourage all to get involved and learn about the issues that are sadly taking place in our penal system! It's time to raise awareness and we need your help!

I got introduced to the organization about 6 months ago through a friend in a prison wife support group. I became friends with Candace and started learning about what and how the organization worked. I became really involved in the group because my fiance has been down 26 years and keeps getting flopped by the parole board for no reason, so I'm fighting for him to get fair treatment as well as others. My role in the group is Secretary and I met some awesome people in the group that has helped me learn a lot.

She's excited to link arms with FTRR and see that ALL of our loved ones experience true and ethical Justice and see the decision makers held ACCOUNTABLE for their unfair practices, corruption and money-motivated topics.
