Educational Forum on Bail Reform
New bail reforms, intended in part to address racial and class inequities in the criminal justice system, went into effect on January 1—not without controversy. What does the law actually say, and what is its impact? What are the values and concerns that underlie the debates about the reforms? What are the lenses through which we as a Jewish community can explore this issue?
