This month our statewide bail reform coalition is ramping up, and we want to keep you informed about the status of bail reform!
As you know, California’s current money bail system unfairly penalizes people with low to moderate incomes and increases racial disparities in the criminal justice system. It fails our families and our communities, and is in desperate need of reform.
That’s why we are calling on our elected officials across the state to vote YES on SB 10, the California Money Bail Reform Act.
We know our community has questions. What will SB 10 do? What impact does money bail have on our local community? What will our local government be required to do once the bill passes?
Come get answers. Join us on Thursday, August 17, 2017 from 6pm – 8pm for a town hall discussion about money bail reform. We’ll hear from impacted community members, and discuss status updates about federal, state and local efforts to reform this unjust system. We’ll also feature a short film released by Brave New Films and the ACLU of California.
We are excited to have a group of amazing panelists:
Anne Rios: Think Dignity, Executive Director
Tory Robinson, Community Activist
Laila Halima Aziz: Slavery Abolitionist
Paul Aceves, Community Activist
