The Bail Trap Screening & Discussion

All Saints Evangelical Lutheran Church
8040 Glenoaks Blvd
91352 Sun Valley , CA

In America, only 1 in 10 people can pay their bail – leading to thousands of innocent (mostly poor) people in jail, who risk losing their jobs, custody of their children — even their lives.

Sandra Bland, found dead in her cell in Texas, and Kalief Browder, who committed suicide in New York, are just two heartbreaking examples of what happens when you can’t afford your bail.

As Jews called to do the work of justice, we are teaming up with CLUE and other organizations and elected officials to host a screening of The Bail Trap from Brave New Films, to educate our community about the problem of money bail and efforts to reform it. 

Join us for a screening, discussion with experts AND ways to take action on this together.
