The Bail Project

About The Bail Project

The Bail Project combats mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system—one person at a time. We restore the presumption of innocence, reunite families, and challenge a system that criminalizes race and poverty. We’re on a mission to end cash bail and create a more just, equitable, and humane pretrial system. Because bail is returned at the end of a case, donations to The Bail Project National Revolving Bail Fund can be recycled and reused to pay bail two to three times per year, maximizing the impact of every dollar.

“I loved the atmosphere there at the office between all the bail disruptors. Everyone there working toward the common goal of battling mass incarceration. Most importantly, I liked that I was able to work one-on-one with clients while giving them access to resources they otherwise wouldn't if it weren't for The Bail Project. Seeng firsthand the effect that our work was having on the citizens of St. Louis. Interacting with different members of the community. The most important thing was that all the grassroots organizations and non-profits fighting for the cause were connected. ”
