You won’t want to miss a special Thursday evening program brought to you by the ABA Center for Innovation and the National Conference of Bar Presidents, featuring CNN Commentator Van Jones. While many now know the damaging effects—job loss, housing loss, license suspensions, and even imprisonment—fines and fees can have, Just Debt? Reimagining Fines & Fees in America focuses on the critical question: How can we create a more just and reliable system? This program will tackle tough questions about and explore opportunities for fines and fees innovation, justice system funding, and procedural improvements. This is sure to be one of the highlights of the ABA Annual Meeting.
