Event description

Description

When misdemeanors carry disproportionate punishments, and bail is unreasonably sought, the upshot is a tragically unjust justice system. Join Alexandra Natapoff, author of the new book Punishment Without Crime: How Our Massive Misdemeanor System Traps the Innocent and Makes America More Unequal, along with Executive Director of the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund, Peter Goldberg, and Darryl Herring, Community Leader with VOCAL-NY, as they dismantle the predatory nature of our inflated misdemeanor and bail systems, which too often target the low-income and communities of color. Moderated by BuzzFeed News criminal justice reporter Albert Samaha.

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Bail Fund.
