REGISTER - Reforming Fines and Fees: From Wealth Stripping to Economic Security
Regressive fines-and-fees systems that strip wealth from low-income families and people of color not only hinder the financial security of vulnerable families, they also compromise the economic strength of cities and regions overall. But community leaders and local officials can take the lead to reform these systems, using an equity lens to design fair, just, and sustainable systems to finance public budgets. This webinar will focus on strategies to reform inequitable court fines and fees to support the economic security and mobility of low-income residents. REGISTER NOW.
