All across the US, thousands of people who have not been convicted of any crime can be jailed indefinitely because they are poor and unable to pay bond. While in pretrial incarceration they can lose their jobs, their children, their homes, and even their lives. By paying bond, Believers Bail Out restores the presumption of innocence before trial and enables recipients to remain free while fighting their cases.
Alongside providing bail and support for individuals released on bond in Chicago, IL, which is home to the largest single-site jail in the United States, Believers Bail Out will also host fundraising iftars and teach-ins in Chicago and across the country to support legislative efforts to abolish money bond and to raise awareness within Muslim communities on the injustices of the bail bond system and the broader prison-industrial complex.
