This month, Illinois will become the first state to implement a system that will never demand payment (also known as cash bail) as a condition for individuals awaiting trial to be released from jail.

Kaelyn @Kaelynski 3/5
This is the first meeting of the JAC since May, their July meeting having been canceled. They operate out of the President's Office of the Cook County Board of Comissioners. The board is chaired by Judge Michael Hyman, and the staff is headed by Executive Director Avik Das.
Kaelyn @Kaelynski 4/5
This meeting is hybrid, and it looks like they are getting the technology up and running. Director Das is ensuring there is a quorum.
Kaelyn @Kaelynski 5/5
Things still haven't gotten started over here, but the JAC is focused on four main objectives, all in service of their mission, "to promote equitable, human-centered, community-driven justice system innovation and practice".
