The Bail Project
The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system — one person at a time.We believe that paying bail for someone in need is an act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty and an act of solidarity with local communities and movements for decarceration. Over the next five years, The Bail Project will open dozens of sites in high-need jurisdictions with the goal of paying bail for tens of thousands of low-income people.We won’t stop until meaningful change is achieved and the presumption of innocence is no longer for sale.
