Tell Congress to pass bail reform!
We’ve all heard about the damaging effects of mass incarceration. But here’s one contributor to the problem that gets barely any coverage: the bail system. Every day, people who commit low-level crimes get trapped in jail because they can’t afford to pay their way out.
Now, Senators Kamala Harris and Rand Paul are trying to do something about it, introducing a bill to incentivize states to make their bail systems fairer and more efficient.
This great, simple fix already has bipartisan support and a real chance of being passed. Let’s make it happen—tell your Senators to support the Harris-Paul bail reform!
Nobody should get trapped in prison for being poor.
