THE PEOPLE’S CONVENING ON FINES AND FEES IN NC

February 14, 11:00 AM – February 15, 2020 4:00 PM

Bennett College Global Learning Center

521 Gorrell Street Greensboro, NC, 27406 United States (map)

The People’s Convening on Fines and Fees in NC, co-hosted by the NC Fines and Fees Coalition and the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program, will serve as the official campaign launch to End Criminal Justice Debt in North Carolina. The convening will provide space to define the issue through simulations and panel discussions led by directly-impacted people with input from local and national advocates. We will then work towards solutions by highlighting current practices and proposing innovative ideas to implement change in NC. We hope this convening will serve as an opportunity to expand our coalition and develop a base of supporters across NC whose voices and participation will be vital to the success of the campaign.
