Court Watch for Faith Communities

October 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Central Synagogue on Lexington and 55th

In partnership with CourtWatchNYC and the Brooklyn Bail Fund, building upon our previous work advocating for criminal justice reform in New York, we are co-sponsoring Court Watch for Faith Communities where people of all faiths can join a community-driven movement to hold key individuals in the criminal justice system accountable. By attending this event, you will receive in-depth training to become the eyes and ears of accountability in New York City courtrooms, collecting real-time data and the narratives of what’s happening in the courtrooms. By watching court proceedings, reporting what we see, and organizing around the systemic injustices that we witness, we check the unlimited power of prosecutors to put people in jail. Our goal is to build the power of ordinary New Yorkers to demand an end to mass incarceration.
