Action Alert!

California! Let's #EndMoneyBail this Summer! 
Let your lawmakers know we need bail reform now!

 

Money bail is one of the main feeders of America's mass incarceration system – and yet something most Americans know very little about. Brave New Films has created a series of short films to change that.

The money bail system is broken: private companies achieve exorbitant profits by scavenging off of communities (primarily of color) living in poverty. Low-income Americans are sitting in jails for days, months, and even years for the most minor of infractions simply because they can’t afford to pay high bond amounts. The reality is that the majority of people in jails – over 70% - are there for one simple reason: they're too poor. This is both morally and legally wrong.

And now, from July 21, 2017 until August 21, 2017, Brave New Films will be campaigning to #EndMoneyBail this summer in the state of California. Premiere events around the state are scheduled in key legislative districts, with audiences ranging from Bay Area activists and advocates to Los Angeles poets and politicians. Social media launches will coincide each week, with new videos from Brave New Films and other partners in the California Bail Coalition. People who can’t attend premiere events and screenings can host their own in-home events with all of our films before they’re released publicly and everybody should call their Assembly members demanding they #EndMoneyBail this summer.

Original Post

We as black people need to STAY OUT of the criminal injustice system. It's nothing but slavery continuation. These fuckers want us ALL locked up in cages. They do it to animals and damn near send them out of their minds. It's claustrophobia personified. Two men or women locked up in the same damn cage to urinate, deficate, in front of each other. Get locked up in solitary confinement in a nasty cell forever and a fuckin' day for nothing with bugs, mice and God knows what else and no one to talk with.

Stop doing EVERYTHING that's going to get your black asses locked up in these jails. EVERYTHING!!!!!

OJ, I'll be glad when you get out. Too bad everything that happens to you we all have to go through 1995 every second of your appearance. Tonight Furhman's tapes are going to be heard. For all we know, he could have done the killings. I had to look at Christoper Darden's ugly puss yesterday. He had nothing to do with the Nevada fiasco. He's still stuck in 1995 too.

Enjoy your grandbabies, OJ. When you ran with the Buffalo Bills, your butt was the bomb diggity to me.So pretty as you were flying up the field.
