Community forum in Chapel Hill on impact of criminal justice debt

If you’ve been following Policy Watch’s coverage of court fines and fees, the for-profit bail industry and efforts toward reform, you’ll want to check out Thursday’s community forum on the impact of criminal justice debt in Orange County.

The forum, to be held at Chapel Hill Town hall at 6 p.m., will include presentations from academics, experts, advocates and activists looking at the real costs of interacting with the justice system, even for those who are eventually found not guilty or whose charges are ultimately dropped.

    I am unable to attend this event, but am very interested in volunteering to help in regards to the issues being discussed. Would you be able to forward any information shared today to my email?

    Many thanks for all you do!
