August 24, 2020 – In response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, The Bail Project released the following statement:

  • “As Jacob Blake fights for his life, we join his family and community in prayer and solidarity. Once again, an unarmed Black man has been gunned down by police officers as if his life didn’t matter. Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back, in front of his three children. No family should have to endure this. No community should have to live in fear that those sworn to protect us can abuse their power and kill with impunity. We demand accountability for this sickening act of police brutality and racial terror. Black lives matter. The scourge of state-sponsored violence and systemic racism must end—and it must end with us.”
