Forum to focus on bail, court fees, criminalization of poverty

If you’ve been following Policy Watch’s ongoing coverage of the criminalization of poverty through the cash bail system and court fines and fees, you’ll want to mark your calendar for an event this month in Greensboro.

The free, interactive forum, presented by the Greensboro’s city council-appointed Criminal Justice Advisory Commission (GCJAC), will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at Barber Park Event Center, 1502 Barber Park Dr.

Michelle Gethers-Clark, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Greensboro, and Steve Friedland, senior scholar and professor of law at Elon Law School, will lead the discussion.
The conversation will range from bail and court fees can to the results of the 2017 NC Self-Sufficiency Standard Report.

Register for the forum here.
