WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE AIM TO DO
THE CO-FOUNDERS OF THIS PROJECT ARE LOCAL SOCIAL SERVICE PROVIDERS WHO HAVE SEEN PRETRIAL DETENTION AND MONEY BAIL AFFECT THE PEOPLE WE SERVE ON A REGULAR BASIS - AND WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Our plan is to start small and raise money through grassroots fundraising. We plan to begin partnering with local businesses, attorneys, public defenders, local social service agencies and organizations, mental and behavioral health care providers, and community members to fundraise and advocate for the need for such fund in this city with such great potential. Members involved in getting this fund started are already connected with dozens of community service agencies and organizations and are able to use those connections to assist individuals we intend to bail out through this fund.
