Trapped: Cash Bail In America Presented with the ACLU-PA
Wednesday, January 27 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm
Like in almost every jurisdiction across the United States, cash bail is a problem in Pennsylvania. Across the commonwealth, thousands of people sit in cages, not because they are guilty – but simply because they are too poor to pay bail. Come to a free screening of Trapped: Cash Bail in America, and a discussion on what ACLU-PA and Bukit Bail Fund have learned on the ground as organizers, lawyers, and activists, as well as how Pennsylvania can end mass incarceration in our backyards.
