Teach-in: Ending Money Bond and Creating a Fairer Pretrial Justice System in Illinois
August 20 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Every year, Illinois incarcerates over 250,000 people who are awaiting trial. None of these people have been convicted of a crime and most are jailed simply because they can’t afford to pay a money bond. Pretrial incarceration is hurting communities across our state.
The time to end money bond is now! Groups across Illinois are working together as part of the Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice with the goal of ending wealth-based pretrial incarceration and protecting the rights of everyone.
Register now to join us on Thursday, August 20th from
6-7:30pm CDT for a teach-in about the Pretrial Fairness Act and how you can make this vision a reality!
