The Salt Lake Community Bail Fund (SLCBF) passed the one-year mark last month. To celebrate, they published an End of Year report detailing the impact they have made during the last 12 months providing free bail payments for individuals who cannot afford to pay their bail for pretrial release held in the Salt Lake County Metro Jail. RadioACTive spoke with SLCBF's Josh Kivlovitz and Katie Van Sleen, an organizer with Decarcerate Utah.
