Enforcing Inequality: Balancing Budgets on the Backs of the Poor

Low-income communities of color bear the heaviest impact as cities across the U.S. seek to balance their budgets and fund their criminal justice systems through ticketing, fees and fines. Advocates in four states -- California, Maryland, Illinois, and North Carolina -- have worked together to research how these fines and fees turn into debt that plagues these communities beyond the scope of the criminal justice system.

Join us to hear from all four advocate groups, including Reinvestment Partners.
