Freedom starts with ending cash bail. Every day, thousands of North Carolinians are kept in jail not because they have been found guilty of a crime, but because they cannot afford to pay for their freedom. The ACLU of North Carolina is working to reform our state's criminal justice system and end our shameful use of cash bail.
Join us on December 8 in Wilmington to learn about the problem of cash bail in North Carolina and how you can get involved with our campaign to end this injustice.
The event will feature interactive activities to explain how our current bail system creates a two-tiered system of justice: one for the rich and one for the rest of us. You will also learn how to take action with the ACLU to help end this corrupt and unfair system that leaves too many innocent people stuck in jail or in debt to the for-profit bail bonds industry.
This event is free and open to the public.
