Gardner Fellow Salil Dudani’s (Stanford ’16) powerful and personal TEDx talk: debtors’ prisons are alive and well across the country, as local governments jail people who are too poor to pay their fines and court fees. Meanwhile, half a million Americans are in jail cells only because they cannot afford to post bail. Salil tells the stories he’s heard from individuals who have experienced Ferguson’s debtors’ prison firsthand, challenging us to think differently about imprisonment.
