Who Makes Bail? A CUP Urban Investigation

  • Bronx School of Law, Government, and Justice  (map)

You are invited to an Urban Investigation debut presentation! The Center for Urban Pedagogy collaborated with Teaching Artist Caits Meissner and public high school students from the Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice to investigate these questions. Students surveyed members of the school community, interviewed key stakeholders working on the issue, and sat in on public arraignments at the Bronx Criminal Court. The team gathered what they learned and created Who Makes Bail?, a guide to how the bail system works and its impact on local communities.
