Ending Ohio’s Dependence on Cash Bail
Freedom should be free. We envision a world where justice, dignity, and freedom are not determined by wealth.
Ohio’s reliance on cash bail has perpetuated a two-tiered system of justice: one for the wealthy and one for the rest of us.
The current system disproportionately punishes and targets Black people and other people of color as well as people from economically disadvantaged communities.
We can’t end mass incarceration without ending the bail system as we know it.
