October 27th: In a packed non-partisan assembly in North Carolina that was standing room only, 600+ Durham CAN leaders held accountable candidates for District and Superior Court Judges and the District Attorney-elect on issues such as ending cash bail, court fines and fees, and a commitment that people with mental illness will not be sent to jail, among other criminal justice reform issues. Durham CAN also won commitments from the District Attorney and Sheriff that they would not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and that the District Attorney and Judges would provide interpreters at Court, and waive crushing fines for driving without a license. All of the judicial candidates who attended the action committed to to support Durham CAN's criminal justice agenda.
