End Cash Bail in North Carolina
Thousands of North Carolinians–a disproportionate number of them Black and Brown people–are being kept in jail not because they have been found guilty of a crime, but because they cannot afford to pay for their freedom before their trial. Many are released only after they turn to for-profit bail bonds companies that can trap people in years of debt.
In North Carolina, 86% of the people in our jails haven’t been convicted of a crime.
Our state's money bail system is broken and corrupt. No one's freedom should depend on their bank account balance. We urgently need a new system that restores fairness and justice to the process.
