A Revolving Community Bail Fund & Advocacy Campaign
Thank you for your interest in supporting the New Orleans Safety and Freedom Fund.
Together, we will make New Orleans a safer, more equitable place to live, by redesigning the role money plays in the criminal justice system.
Safety and Freedom Fund supporters make both social and economic impact.
In addition to helping a fellow New Orleanian maintain their dignity and liberty as they fight their case, research shows that posting bail on someone's behalf recovers an average of $2,000 in economic opportunity otherwise lost while sitting in jail unable to work.
And by deepening your understanding about the role that money (bail, drug testing fees, jail release fees, fines, etc.) plays in the system, Safety and Freedom Fund supporters contribute to long-term systemic change. Over the coming years, we will partner with impact litigators, legislators and grassroots organizations to rewrite the laws that govern the flow of money in this system.
The New Orleans Safety and Freedom Fund is a program of Operation Restoration, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
