      Event Description:

      Join our Greater Miami Chapter to discuss the process of bonding out of jail following an arrest on Saturday, April 27, at Gibson Park in Miami!

      2 p.m. - Reception
      2:30 p.m. - Panel discussion begins

      Your freedom should not depend on your ability to pay for your freedom — yet that’s the way our current money bail system works. It is one of the most corrupt and broken parts of our justice system. Close to half a million people are in jail today awaiting trial, many of them incarcerated because they are too poor to afford cash bail. The time has come to abolish this system. Panelists include: Miami-Dade County Public Defender Carlos Martinez, ACLU of Florida Criminal Justice Reform Campaign Manager Raymer Maguire, and Complex Litigation Associate TerryAnn Howell of Nelson Mullins Broad and Cassel. Refreshments will be made available.
