OPEN LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY FROM THE BAIL PROJECT AND THE BATON ROUGE NAACP CHAPTER
Cash bail should not be something that keeps someone from being a productive member of society, and their inability to pay should not keep them in jail. With that in mind, we are uniting together to help bail out men from East Baton Rouge Parish Prison this Father’s Day.
We will be partnering with The Bail Project, a national non-profit organization with a new office in Baton Rouge designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system, one person at a time. Over the next five years, The Bail Project will work with local partners to open dozens of sites in high-need jurisdictions and pay bail for tens of thousands of low-income people, reducing the human suffering caused by unaffordable cash bail and building on the work of grassroots groups and movements for decarceration and racial justice.
Your support will help us bring the father’s home to their children for Father’s Day. Donate today and help us bring a family back together.Read more »
