Court Watch MA is a community project with the goal of shifting the power dynamics in our courtrooms by exposing the decisions judges and prosecutors make about our neighbors every day.
Participants will learn how to observe and record information about court proceedings in Berkshire County.
We are hopeful about the changes sweeping across our state in the form of criminal justice reform legislation and progressive district attorneys. We also recognize that the transition will take time and transformation doesn’t happen overnight. We’re aiming for transparency in documenting the pace of change and engaging the community in the transformation process.
Court Watchers will be in court to celebrate reform successes, support our neighbors, and maintain a public record on progress.
