Documentary Conversations - Trapped: Cash Bail in America
Show Notes

Trapped: Cash Bail in America is a compelling new film that takes a close look at the controversial cash bail system in the United States, the people adversely affected by its implementation, and the ongoing grassroots efforts to combat its negative consequences and to reform the system. 

Join moderator, Topeka K. Sam, filmmaker, Chris Jenkins, and a leading panel of social justice change makers for a conversation on the economic and racial inequalities of the cash bail system, emerging reform efforts, the opposition posed by the bail industry and how the 2020 election will shape the future of the American criminal-legal system. 

Trapped: Cash Bail in America highlights the complex and multifaceted ways in which cash bail fundamentally punishes individuals, upends families, and destabilizes minority communities; all without a guilty verdict.
