Take Action Now to Defend the Pretrial Fairness Act from Rollbacks!

Digital Call to Action from SOUL, Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation in coalition with the Illinois Network for Pretrial Justice

Last year, communities across Illinois got our state legislators to pass the Pretrial Fairness Act, which will end money bond and transform the pretrial system in 2023. Parts of it have already expanded rights for people on electronic monitoring as of January 2022. But right now, legislators are trying to roll back these reforms during the last couple of days of the legislative session!

Together, we can protect against rollbacks of the historic policies that will expand pretrial freedom and justice throughout Illinois!

Use this form to send this letter to your legislator letting them know you will not stand for any changes to the Pretrial Fairness Act! This includes rolling back protections for people on electronic monitoring. Let them know the same community that pushed them to pass the Pretrial Fairness Act is watching to ensure they do not counteract that progress this week!
