Michael Deegan-McCree is the partnerships coordinator at The Bail Project.

Michael comes to TBP from #cut50, where he served as the policy associate helping to lead state and federal legislative efforts. At #cut50, Michael played a pivotal role in helping pass the First Step Act, which The New York Times said would “deliver the most significant changes to our criminal justice system in a generation.” Michael believes in working with bipartisan coalitions to alter the national narrative around our criminal legal system and create empathy for those who have been directly impacted by it. Michael also served as a district adviser to California State Senator Nancy Skinner and an assistant to Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and hopes to serve in elected office later in his career.
