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. Even a few days in jail can ruin a person’s life. They may lose their job, their family may lose housing and some even lose their children.
We're in need of volunteers to lend a few hours to observe court proceedings and provide jail and court support. We also need food, water and funds to give a rose to each mama we bail out! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
