Event description
Money bail is one of the main causes of mass incarceration in the US. Learn the basics and common misconceptions about the money bail system

About this Event

Few people know what the money bail system is, let alone how it all works. 70% of people in jail are there for one reason: living in poverty. Low-income Americans are sitting in jails for days, months, and even years simply because they can’t afford to pay high bail amounts. All the while, private companies are profiting in the billions each year.

Come join us on Wednesday, October 23rd as we watch short videos and discuss them as a community. We'll hear from community champions that have varied voices and perspectives on criminal justice reform. And, we will have plenty of time to have discussions amongst the audience.

Invite your neighbors, co-workers, and friends. Free with Eventbrite RSVP. Doors open at 6:00pm. Let's Build Relationships Awareness Voices & Engagement! #MakeATXBRAVE
