COVID-19 & Protest Rapid Response Fund

COVID-19 & Protest Rapid Response Fund

The Philadelphia Bail Fund is working urgently to free as many of our neighbors as possible during this pandemic. There is an urgent need to post bail as COVID-19 threatens people in jail, where crowded living quarters and inadequate health care make conditions ripe for a viral outbreak.

We are also standing in solidarity with those protesting the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police Department, and demanding an end to police violence against black communities. We are committed to providing direct bail assistance to Philadelphia protesters participating in actions to ensure their safe return home. 

In just the past month, we helped bring over 160 people home from Philly’s jails. But we continue to receive a flood of referrals, as our neighbors continue to be held in cages.

Please donate now to help us respond quickly by freeing our neighbors who remain in jail simply because they cannot pay bail. Your support now means we can free as many people as possible, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
