The current socio-political moment represents the most clear convergence of three specific issues in our lifetime: police violence, intra-community violence, and mass incarceration. Join the Coalition to End Money Bond on September 26th at 2pm at 37th & State streets as we descend upon the Chicago Police Department’s so-called “Public Safety Headquarters” in support of the Pretrial Fairness Act, a bill that will end money bond and dramatically reduce the number of people incarcerated while awaiting trial in Illinois. Together, we will dismantle the false narrative that policing and incarceration are effective responses to gun violence and other byproducts of the systematic destruction of Black and Brown communities. You can learn more about the Pretrial Fairness Act by watching this teach-in about the bill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmQSL70ym-U
