The Bail Trap - Screening and Panel

The New Parkway
474 24th Street

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.
