Should we get rid of cash bail?

On this Moving Kentucky Forward podcast, we talk with Alex Flood, the lead field organizer for the project to eliminate cash bail in Louisville. The project is a joint effort between Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), which Alex works for, and The Bail Project, a nationwide movement with a chapter in Louisville.

We talk about cash bail and why it is ultimately both unconstitutional and morally bankrupt, and what we could do instead. We also learn what Alex and SURJ are doing about it in Louisville specifically. If this is not a topic that you are familiar with, take about 25 minutes and learn why we need to end this practice.
