Join The People’s Lobby as we learn about what criminal justice reform looks like in DuPage County, and what we can do about it! We will be honing in on the issue of pre-trial justice specifically. Right now, thousands of people are incarcerated in Illinois jails simply because they cannot afford to pay money bonds. More than 90% of people in Illinois jails are detained pretrial—a considerably higher rate than the national rate of 67%. This is an enormous injustice, and we need to do something about it! To learn more, come to our teach-in!
