A Tale of Two Tickets with Robert Reich and W. Kamau Bell

March 18, 2019
Last summer, advocates across California came together to launch Debt Free Justice California (DFJC). Facilitated by EBCLC and the ACLU of Southern California, DFJC is driving criminal justice reform to end the criminalization of poverty. Today, we’re so proud to share our brand-new video A Tale of Two Tickets , based on the research and fieldwork of EBCLC advocates Brandon Greene and Theresa Zhen. In A Tale of Two Tickets , Robert Reich and W. Kamau Bell take us deep into the cascade of life-altering consequences that can arise from a simple traffic ticket. Share the video, visit www.CADebtJustice.org for more info, and let’s rally together to end the criminalization of poverty.
