The Fines and Fees Justice Center’s (FFJC) Nevada state campaign is the state’s first sustained effort to reform harmful fines and fees. FFJC Nevada is building broad-based coalitions from across the political spectrum including people who have experienced the criminal justice system, grassroots organizations, activists, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, legislators, law enforcement, and faith-based and advocacy organizations.
Fines and fees make New York’s communities less safe, they perpetuate and exacerbate poverty, and they extract millions of dollars from the most vulnerable among us, particularly communities of color. We need reform now.
Cities and Counties for Fine and Fee Justice is a national leadership network dedicated to supporting localities that want to assess and reform fines, fees, tickets, and financial penalties that often have an adverse and disproportionate impact on low-income people and people of color.
