Bail Bond Reform Speaker Series at Salem on July 8!

Tom Berg, First Assistant Harris County District Attorney will be speaking at Salem on Sunday, July 8, at 4:00 p.m. in the nave.  (DA Kim Ogg will not be at Salem as previously publicized.)

Bail Bond Reform is sorely needed because unfortunately, people with money almost always have a completely different outcome than people who have no money.  This system creates a debtor’s prison where people are imprisoned because they are poor.  None of these people have been found guilty of anything.  This unjust system has recently been declared unconstitutional in a federal court.  Not only is the system unjust, it’s expensive for taxpayers to keep people in jail who are not dangerous and have not been judged guilty.

To learn more about how our bails bond system works, to ask questions, to hear recommendations for how the system should change, join us on Sunday, July 8, at 4:00p.m. in our worship center.
