Tulsa

The Bail Project – Tulsa serves people incarcerated at the David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center in the District Court of Tulsa court system.

Oklahoma consistently has one of the highest incarceration rates among all U.S. states. Its record breaking incarceration rates are the direct result of the state’s reliance on fines and fees to fund its budget. Oklahoma is also one of the leading incarcerators of women in the country. While our initial strategy focused on posting bail only for women, we now post bail for men and women in Tulsa County. We work with the Tulsa Public Defenders to identify clients, and with the nonprofit Still She Rises to advocate for women and mothers in North Tulsa, many of whom have been separated from their families by the state.
