8:30 Presentation by Stephanie Flores Pineda, a Community Organizer at Silicon Valley De-Bug
Stephanie will give a short presentation about the impact of Bail on a suspect's life and the corruption built in to the current system. She will also talk about SB10 and AB42 that SV DeBug is working on.
In 2012, California amended its "Three Strikes" law--one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop. 36 marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days the reintegration of thousands of "lifers" was underway.
THE RETURN examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines--prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California's experiment teach the nation?
From the award-winning producers of Better This World and El Poeta.
