Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice
We are part of the Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice that works to end money bond in Illinois and reduce incarceration in county jails. Like our UUPMI Facebook Page to stay be notified of calls to action. IN the past we have filed witness slips, submitted testimony, attended lobby days, and educated our friends and loved ones about the importance of pretrial justice. Though the Pretrial Fairness Act was voted in as part of the Criminal Justice Omnibus Bill (now known as the Safe-T Act), a major victory of the Black Lives Matter movement, we know that backlash is coming. Please contact us and consider hosting a Teach-In in your community or congregation about the gains of this act and how it helps us all communities be more safe and stable by keeping people out of jail.
