Veterans Summit

Since 2019 Chief Justice Sharon Kennedy has led the Lean Forward initiative with the goal of advancing treatment for justice-involved veterans in Ohio. Each fall, the Lean Forward initiative hosts a Veterans Summit bringing together stakeholders such as courts, treatment providers, and other community partners from around the state with the mission to serve those who served. This year, the 10th Annual Veterans Summit will take place on Thursday, November 21, 2024. Registration for the 2024 Veterans Summit on Special Populations will open in September 2024.
