Poor Not Guilty Challenges: Street Law lesson plan

The Poor Not Guilty: Fines & Fees Challenge can be used to sensitize audiences to the difficulties faced by poor and homeless people in the United States. We have provided a suggested lesson plan, but it can also be set up at a conference table on a tablet for attendees to interact with on their own, or used as part of a webinar or in person presentation, board training, or even in an advocacy visit with an elected or appointed official. Please feel free to use the exercise however you need it, and let us know how it works and if you have any suggestions for improvements.
