26th and california Cook County Circuit Court
2650 S California Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60608
Our Current Cook County criminal justice system is caging thousands of people, and a disproportionate number of people of color; not because they are guilty of a crime but because they are too poor to afford bail amounts set by Judges. September 18th an order made by Chief Judge Evans will go into effect. This order recommend's that Judge's should consider what a person can afford before setting bails amounts.

The People's Lobby will rally in front of the Cook County Circuit Court House to celebrate being one step closer to a more just criminal justify system and call on Judges to do the right thing, by following the order from Chief Evans. This order has the potential to release thousands of legally innocent people incarcerated while awaiting trail.

We will start with a rally at 12:15pm and collectively observe felony court at 1:30pm to insure that Judges are clear that the injustice of pretrial money bail ends today!

This rally is co-sponsered by:
— Chicago Community Bond Fund
— A Just Harvest
— Nehemiah Trinity Rising
— The Next Movement (TNM)
— Justice & Witness Ministry of the Chicago Metropolitan Association, Illinois Conference, United Church of Christ

* WE WILL NEED TO GO THROUGH SECURITY TO OBSERVE COURT. THERE ARE FREE LOCKERS AVAILABLE BUT THEY ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH TO HOLD LARGE ELECTRONICS SUCH AS LAPTOPS*
