This advocacy day will dive into what the divest/invest model looks like, dissect some of the work (jail and prison closures) that have been taking place over the years, and make a radical ask for folks to be a part of this work. This day will also focus on the ways that fines and fees are causing long sentences and denying people opportunities to be successful. Attendees will also get a chance to speak to lawmakers about what can be done to improve these issues and bring fairness to the criminal legal system as well as provide a chance for attendees to speak to lawmakers about the ways Georgia’s laws should be changed.
