The Bail Project is a non-profit 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 40 sites in high-need jurisdictions with the goal of paying bail for over 160,000 low-income Americans, all while collecting stories and data that prove money bail is not necessary to ensure people return to court.

We won’t stop until meaningful change is achieved and the presumption of innocence is no longer for sale.
