Join the Fight to End Money Bail
Everyday tens of thousands of people languish in jail simply because they cannot afford bail. In addition to the over $9 billion wasted to incarcerate people who have been convicted of no crime, pre-trial incarceration has catastrophic impacts on families and communities. Law for Black Lives provides support and coordination to dozens of groups across the country working to end money bail and create alternative systems to support our people in crisis. In addition to providing referrals for legal support to organizing groups, we are the co-project coordinators of the National Bail Out efforts. The National Bail Out collectively created an organizing curriculum and has bailed out over 200 people since last May. In addition to supporting and coordinating the National Bail Outs, we provide ongoing policy support to groups across the country who are fighting to end money bail in a way that paves the path for de-incarceration and alternative community based systems.

This May, groups across the country, will participate in a mass bail out for Mother’s Day. We will bail out Mama’s, in all their forms, as we continue to challenge this country's inhumane pre-trial detention system. We are currently looking for lawyers and legal workers who would like to join National Bail Out Legal Crews. The Legal crews will support local organizers in completing feasibility studies, identifying legal issues, tracking the outcome of cases and supporting ongoing advocacy work.
