National Bail Fund Network

National Bail Fund Network
San Francisco, CA

The National Bail Fund Network is made up of over eighty community bail and bond funds across the country. We regularly update this listing of community bail funds that are freeing people by paying bail/bond and are also fighting to abolish the money bail system and pretrial detention.

Black Mama's Bail Out

Black Mama's Bail Out
New Market, TN

We launched Black Mama’s Bail Out, a campaign to bail out Black Mamas and caregivers from jails and migrant detention centers across the country every year before Mother’s Day, marking the first mass bail out action in contemporary times. We use the term “Mama” to encompass all Black women and femmes that self-identify as a Mama—including cis and Trans women, femmes, gender nonconforming people, and non-binary folks—who parent and care for their families and communities in various traditional and nontraditional ways. We are not just speaking about birth and biological mothers.

Tucson Second Chance Community Bail Fund

Tucson Second Chance Community Bail Fund
Oakland, CA

The Tucson Second Chance Community Bail Fund (TSCCBF) was established to address the disproportionate impact of the cash bail system on communities of color and vulnerable populations here in Pima County. The TSCCBF wants to help restore economic justice and dignity to people by helping them return home, keep their jobs, retain custody of their children and fight their cases in court.
