On Wednesday, October 16th, the UCLA Labor Center will release a new report, Work, Pay, or Go to Jail: Court-Ordered Community Service in Los Angeles. Unlike court debt, surprisingly little is known about court-ordered community service programs. This is the first study to analyze a large-scale system of court-ordered community service in the contemporary United States. Utilizing a labor lens, it examines whether community service is actually an alternative to debt. The report is based on about 5,000 individuals required to perform community service in LA County. 

Who: Lucero Herrera, Tia Koonse, Melanie Sonsteng-Person, UCLA Labor Center; and Noah Zatz, UCLA School of Law

Where: Digital report release on labor.ucla.edu 

When: Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 6 a.m. (PST)
