This kick-off session will frame the issue underlying the series to address the question of why to focus on improving appearance rates. Our focus here is exclusively on increasing court appearance rates for people who are not in jail. We will discuss why it is important for courts to improve appearance rates, how court appearances relate to building public trust and confidence, and addressing racial and ethnic disparities.
