The Bail Trap Film Screening with ACLU-PA

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Bail Trap: American Ransom Film Screening with the ACLU of Pennsylvania

ACLU-PA is hosting a screening of The Bail Trap on February 10 at City of Asylum.

From the ACLU:

“70% of people in jail are there for one reason: living in poverty. Money bail is one of the main causes of mass incarceration in the United States. Yet, few people know what the money bail system is, let alone how it all works or why we need to do away with it. Join us for a screening of a film that shows why it must end.

Following the screening, ACLU-PA Legal Fellow Ali Szemanski will discuss the ACLU’s Campaign for Smart Justice.”

The event is free and light refreshments will be provided. Doors open at 6 PM.
