Skill-Building for Social Justice: Dollar Bail Brigade & The Bail System
Monday, April 9, 2018 at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Wolff Conference Room, Room D1103, Albert and Vera List Academic Center, D1103 6 East 16th Street, New York, NY 10003, Room D1103
The Bronx Freedom Fund envisions a society that humanizes instead of criminalizes. The fund restores the presumption of innocence by keeping clients with their families, at their jobs, and out of jail while they await trial. They work tirelessly to fight mass incarceration and the criminalization of race and poverty, and to end the cash bail system as it exists.
Advocates and organizers from Bronx Freedom Fund, Dollar Bail Brigade, and other groups working to address injustice in the prison industrial complex will visit The New School to lead a workshop focused on the workings of the inequitable bail system and how individuals can take action. This workshop is part of Lang Civic Engagement & Social Justice's Skill-building for Social Justice series, which partners with social justice organizations and activists across New York City to introduce New School community members to frameworks, methodologies, and practices they can implement in their own lives.
This event is co-sponsored by Lang Civic Engagement & Social Justice.
