Momentum for bail reform is gaining steam in CA and nationwide for one simple reason: The current system isn’t working. Just a few days in jail can lead to the loss of a job, child custody, even a home -- yet people who cannot afford money bail can be held for months while awaiting trial. Join Jessica Farris of the ACLU of Southern California and Jonathan Hirschberg of Bend The Arc, a Jewish Partnership for Justice, to learn more about current bail practices and the work advocates are doing with statewide legislators to change them.
Admission is free/donations are gratefully accepted.
