The Detroit Justice Center is partnering with The Bail Project to launch a bail fund in Detroit this spring. A majority of people in jail have not been convicted of a crime and are locked up simply because they can’t afford to pay bail. We must end cash bail and, in the meantime, get people out and back home to their families.
The Bail Project is hiring two full-time Bail Disruptors to identify people in pretrial detention, pay their bail, and provide support throughout the legal process. You can find the full job description here. Please share this opportunity widely, especially with formerly incarcerated individuals. Apply by March 23rd.
