Supreme Court Commission on Money Bond Needs Community Input!

March 28, 2019 / 1min read / 16,141 Comments

What’s the deal with the Money Bond issue? Well, the video below, produced by the Illinois Coalition to End Money Bond, provides a quick tutorial on what it is, and why it should eliminated as a tool in our justice system.

At the end of the day, if you are not a threat to the safety of the community, you should not be held in court pending your case being heard. You are innocent until proven guilty! And, if you are a threat to the community, you shouldn’t be granted bond anyway.

The efforts of this coalition have contributed to a drop in the Cook County Jail population, from over 10,000 to less than 6,000, and we aren’t done yet. We hope to convince the Supreme Court Commission on Money Bond to hold a public hearing this summer. BE READY!

Get Home Safely: 10 Rules of Survival

On December 14, 2014, shortly after Michael Brown’s death, Trinity United Church of Christ held safety forums with a variety of law professionals for our youth and their parents, and we dedicated our bulletin to educating our congregation on safety measures to use in their interactions with police. An important infographic, “10 Rules of Survival If Stopped By the Police,” developed by David Miller (founder of the Dare to be King Project) was shared, and, in partnership with CTS, WFYI, Trinity UCC, and SALT, those rules were used to create a short film, “Get Home Safely: 10 Rules of Survival,” to bring this critical information to an even wider audience and help keep our children safe.
