What do you think about bail reform?
Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. One of the biggest promoters of injustice in our society is our criminal justice system. It is a two tiered system. The highest tier is for people with money who can afford bail and powerful attorneys who are well connected and highly skilled. The lowest tier is for poor people who cannot afford bail and cannot afford skilled well connected attorneys.
New York State needs to enact bail reform. UUs should be educated and concerned about the dysfunctions in our criminal justice system.
