A Kickoff with Community Members and Concerned Activists to Keep Colorado Courts Accountable
Join us for the launch of the ACLU of Colorado and the Colorado Freedom Fund’s collaborative project to decrease pretrial detention in Colorado jails by mobilizing volunteers to watch court proceedings and to collect and publish data to ensure that courts are complying with state law.
This is an opportunity to gather together a community of passionate individuals to understand how the cash bail system operates in Colorado, learn from activists working on legislative measures to reform our criminal legal system and to create accountability in Colorado courtrooms.
We need the support of committed and willing participants to hold courts in Colorado accountable. Court watching is an accessible way Coloradans can learn how their tax dollars are being used in the pursuit of “justice” and to ensure that courts’ time and resources are not being spent going after low level offenses by those who may be too poor to buy their own freedom, further exacerbating Colorado’s overburdened jails.
With your help, we can ensure all Coloradans are treated with dignity and equity within the criminal legal system.
