End Cash Bail

Three out of five people in U.S. jails today have not been convicted of a crime.

The cash bail system criminalizes poverty, as people who are unable to afford bail are detained while they await trial. Cash bail perpetuates inequities in the justice system that are disproportionately felt by communities of color and those experiencing poverty.

We must end cash bail which not only saves taxpayer dollars, but is a step to creating a more equitable society.
