February 24 “The Bail Trap” The inability to pay bail is one of the main causes of America’s mass incarceration system yet something most Americans know little about. The money bail system is broken: private companies achieve exorbitant profits by exploiting people (primarily of color) in poor communities. Many low-income Americans sit in jails for days, months, and even years, accused, but not convicted of minor misdemeanors, simply because they can’t afford to pay excessively high bail. Find out about the devastation caused by money bail and how we can fix the system.
March 17 “Fix It” This documentary reaches across the political and ideological divide to look at how our dysfunctional health care system damages our economy, suffocates businesses, discourages physicians, and negatively impacts the nation’s health, while remaining unaffordible for a third of our citizens. Learn about the advantages and challenges of a single payer health care system and how California can lead the nation by creating one.
