Civil Forfeiture: Guilty Until Proven Innocent.

The objective was to create a short advocacy video for the Bronx Defenders that highlights the issue of civil forfeiture in New York City. The audience included people who may be at risk of a civil forfeiture action by the NYPD, potential activists and allies, city council members and other political leaders, and legal advocates. The goals of the video were to: raise awareness of the issue of civil forfeiture and its consequences, educate potential targets of civil forfeiture proceedings as to their rights under the law, encourage the audience to take action and stimulate real world and online discussion about civil forfeiture and property seizure in NYC. The video was created in both English and Spanish-language versions.
