Malik Neal, co-founder of the Philly Bail Fund will launch the fall series with a talk on Thursday, September 13th at Lehigh Valley Friends Meeting at 7:00 PM. Malik says: “We started this bail fund not only to help people in the short term but also to push for the end of money-bail in Philadelphia.”

Philly Bail fund’s organizers partnered with a Princeton University researcher and other legal and academic experts to ensure that the fund would generate compelling data for replication purposes. Their tagline is — Poverty Should Not Determine Freedom.

Sally Keglovits, who teaches Criminal Justice at De Sales University, will join Malik for discussion after his presentation. Sally is retired from being in charge of the Allentown US Probation office and helped to design the model for re-entry court that is used nationally.

This event is free. Hearty snacks and wine (must be over 21) will be available.
