Use the form below to send your elected official a message to support bail reform that responsibly reduces pretrial detention, eliminates wealth-based detention, and combats racial disparities in the justice system.

Send a message right now to your state representative and senator to support real bail reform.

Your Message

The size of someone's bank account shouldn't determine whether they live or die in jail during the public health crisis we all face.

As your constituent, I urge you to support real, meaningful bail reform that responsibly reduces pretrial detention, eliminates wealth-based detention, and combats racial disparities in the pretrial context. Thank you for listening.

Sincerely,
