  • Nusrat Choudhury, Deputy Director, ACLU Racial Justice Program discusses modern-day debtors' prisons. The ACLU is fighting against the punishment of people who cannot pay money to courts simply because of their poverty, through arrest, jailing, driver's license suspensions, etc. Since courts generate revenue for local governments, these practices funnel poor and low-income people into cycles of debt, poverty, and involvement with the legal system.
