Challenging the Money Bail System

Every night, there are 450,000 human beings awaiting trial in U.S. jail cells solely because they cannot make a payment.  We challenge wealth-based detention and promote anti-carceral alternatives to human caging that are less restrictive, more effective, and grounded in holistic community engagement and empowerment.  Our work has freed tens of thousands of people from jail cells, helped to elevate the issue of money bail into the popular consciousness, and is setting precedent that will forever change the bail-setting process in the United States
