Event description

Description

It's been four years since courts determined that New York City's "stop-and-frisk" policy was unconstitutional, but communities across the city continue to be subjected to "broken windows" policing. The Brooklyn Community Bail Fund sees the impact of these policies every day as it pays bail for New Yorkers who would otherwise be incarcerated. Join the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund in a discussion of how community organizations are fighting back against the criminalization of poverty in New York City. Panel discussion moderated by Brooklyn Law School Professor and author Jocelyn Simonson.
