The Bail Trap: Screening and Panel

Sunday, July 23, 2017 - 12:30pm to 2:30pm

California's bail system is unfair and has to go. In Alameda County's Santa Rita Jail, approx 75% of people inside are there because they cannot afford bail. No one should be locked up because they can't pay. 

Come learn more about what we're doing to change the system. The Ella Baker Center for Human Rights is hosting a screening of The Bail Trap, a film about what's really going on with the bail industry, and what we can do to stop it. 

The screening will be followed by a Panel about bail reform. Panelists include Tracey and Tai Bell-Borden, whose story is featured in the film, Jack Bryson, and a representative from Brave New Films. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end.
