Advocacy in Action Lunch and Learn
April 25, 2019
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The American ideal of “innocent until proven guilty” is flipped on its head by our cash bail system. Those without funds to post bail can languish in jail for months or even years awaiting trial, meanwhile losing their job, housing and even custody of their children – losses that may never be reversed even when the person is ultimately acquitted of wrong-doing. Representatives of Arch City Defenders will fill us in on the savings available to citizens and to the city budget by eliminating this outdated system.
Drinks are provided, please bring your lunch. There is not cost to attend.
RSVP requested but not required. Please RSVP below or call 314-993-5181.
