Poor Not Guilty Challenges: Fines + Fees

In partnership with University of Miami’s School of Law’s Human Rights Clinic, National Homelessness Law Center, and Fines and Fees Justice Center, Lien Tran through her Matters at Play Lab designed and developed three roleplaying experiences to learn how laws unjustly fine petty offenses that disproportionately impact those experiencing homelessness, poverty, and/or housing insecurity.
