Fairness Not Wealth: Ending Money Bail in Illinois

October 12, 2022 (All day)
October 25, 2022 (All day)

Join us and learn the facts about how the Pretrial Fairness Act will restore the presumption of innocence and end wealth-based pretrial incarceration in Illinois, and how you can take action to defend the Pretrial Fairness Act against baseless attacks.

The ACLU of Illinois is a member of the Coalition to End Money Bond, a group of organizations with the shared goal of stopping the large-scale jailing of people simply because they were unable to pay a monetary bond. Together with our partners in the Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice, the Coalition is working to implement the Pretrial Fairness Act all across the State of Illinois. Find more about the Coalition and Network here

Please stay tuned for program announcements. The events will feature elected officials, policy experts, and people personally impacted by the unjust money bail system.
