Community Courtwatching Initiative
Help us monitor the courts to ensure that the proposed money bond reforms are enacted as promised!
The Coalition to End Money Bond is organizing a Community Courtwatching Initiative during the month of August, 2017. Every day, volunteer observers will go to Central Bond Court at 2600 S. California and document what happens. We will see whether promised reforms are having an impact, how our neighbors are being treated, and create a record of they way bond court runs for comparison in the future. At the end of the month, we will pool our observations together and write a community report about this crucial entrypoint into the criminal justice system and Cook County Jail.
