(Partner Event) Close The Workhouse Court Monitoring - Monthly Meeting

  • Deaconess Foundation 1000 N. Vandeventer Ave. St. Louis, MO 63113 (map)

Interested in getting involved with the court monitoring program for the campaign to Close The Workhouse? Come join us for a brief training on what to expect in court, how to use our form, and what to do with the information you gather.

Court watching is a fantastic way to learn about the criminal legal system and hold prosecutors and judges accountable while supporting people directly impacted by cash bail, pretrial monitoring, and jail conditions.

After our brief training for new court monitors, we will get together with anyone who has gone to court monitor thus far to discuss how it is going and strategize on how to move forward.
We want your feedback! We will be holding these meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.

6:00pm-6:45pm: Court Monitoring
Training for newcomers

6:45pm-8pm: Court Monitors feedback and strategy meeting

If you are unable to attend this meeting but want to be trained, please email and we will connect you with someone who can train you individually.
