Rikers, the Harms of Cash Bail, and the NYC Mass Bail Out

Wednesday, October 17, 2018
12:10pm - 1:00pm
Jerome Greene Hall
Room 106
Columbia Law School, 435 W. 116th St, New York, NY

Overview

Join the CCCCT, the Columbia Justice Lab, and the Columbia Center for Justice for a panel discussion about the unconvicted pre-trial population held on Rikers Island, the wealth-based system of incarceration that cash bail creates, and the October 2018 Mass Bail Out action happening right now in our city, spearheaded by grassroots justice reform groups and the RFK Center for Human Rights. This event will feature panelists working on all sides of this issue: defenders, organizers, formerly incarcerated New Yorkers, and scholars.

This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and get involved. 

Lunch will be served.
