Episode 3: Chainbreakers. For many in the US, the prospect of unfair detention and jail time is all too real. These underprivileged groups, black people in particular, have matters made worse for them by the cash bail system, which punishes the poor with time behind bars before a trial even begins.

Tech for good, for good.
