The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization that pays bail for people in need,
reuniting families and restoring the presumption of innocence.
Today, in America, two people charged with exactly the same thing will experience radically different legal systems based on the size of their bank account and the color of their skin. We’re on a mission to change this. We believe that paying bail for someone in need is an act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty. Over the next five years, The Bail Project will scale its immediate relief efforts to dozens of high-need jurisdictions and secure freedom for tens of thousands of people, while demonstrating that our approach offers an effective alternative to unaffordable cash bail.
