Ask your lawmakers to take action on bail reform.
Michigan’s bail system is badly broken. It is a key driver of mass incarceration and disproportionately impacts Black and Brown people. On any given day, over half of Michigan’s jail population – about 8,000 people presumed innocent but who can’t afford bail – remain locked behind bars, still waiting for their day in court.
This year, we must work together to pass legislation aimed squarely at transforming our broken bail system so that it enables people to contribute to their communities rather than restrain them with overbearing and harmful bail restrictions.
