The Bail Project – Houston is a partnership site with Restoring Justice and serves people incarcerated at the Harris County Jail in the Harris County District Court system.
We formed a partnership with the group Restoring Justice amid the coronavirus pandemic, when reducing the Harris County Jail population became more critical than ever. We’re also working with Pure Justice to connect our clients to essential services one they get out of jail.
The number of people incarcerated in Harris County increased about 50% between 1970 and 2017.
The number of women incarcerated in Harris County tripled from 1970 to 2017.
More than twice as many Black people are in jail in Harris County compared to white people, a disproportionate amount in comparison to the overall county population.
