Across the country, city and county leaders are advancing bold reforms to ensure their fines, fees, and tickets do not place a disproportionate burden on low-income residents and people of color. To seize upon and expand this momentum for change, PolicyLink, The San Francisco Financial Justice Project, and the Fines and Fees Justice Center have established Cities & Counties for Fine and Fee Justice, a national network of local governments committed to leading on meaningful fine and fee reform that works better for people — and for government.
Through Cities and Counties for Fine and Fee Justice, municipal and county officials will have an opportunity to lead local teams that advance cutting-edge policies, engage with experts and peers from across the country, and catalyze a national movement to advance equitable fine and fee reform. Participating localities will receive grant funding, individualized technical assistance, and training on a range of tools, strategies, promising policies, and best practices.
