Our Justice for All Hybrid In-Person/Online Teach-in at Franny Lou’s Porch. You can watch the teach-in online via Facebook Live.
Whether or not you’ve been through it before, the process of going from arrest to arraignment and having your bail set might seem cryptic. What rights to you have? What if your rights are violated? How are these tools used to intentionally violate the rights of marginalized communities? What does it all mean for the fight to end mass incarceration?
What does Justice for All Do?
J4A is committed to ending mass incarceration and reimagining what community safety looks like. This work includes political education, centering the stories of those most impacted by the criminal legal system, and electing accountable people to positions such as District Attorney.
Who’s in J4A?
People from all walks of life, from all parts of Philly – what unites us is a belief that mass incarceration and our current community safety solutions are going more harm than good. And, more importantly, that we can change that.
