ArchCity Defenders and Action St. Louis present the premiere collaborative podcast, "Under The Arch." Your hosts Blake Strode, Executive Director of ArchCity Defenders, and Kayla Reed, Director of Action St. Louis, explore the issues facing our community and the people working to transform them.
This week's episode brings together voices from partnering organizations ArchCity Defenders, Inc., Action St. Louis, The Bail Project St. Louis, and The Advancement Project to talk about the cash bail system and the movement to close the Workhouse. In June of 2019, the Close The Workhouse campaign gained a corporate advocate in Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, with co-founder Ben Cohen joining a press conference and public call to action at St. Louis City Hall to voice his support for the movement.
Follow the Close the Workhouse campaign on social media @CloseTheWorkhouse, and support the cause by attending monthly strategy meetings at Deaconness Center for Child Well-Being every first Thursday at 6pm.
