Cash bail is unjust and a major contributor to mass incarceration in America. The system keeps people in jail, pending trial, solely because they can’t afford to get out while the rich can walk free with the same allegations.
Cash bail MUST end.
As Election Day approaches in many cities, think about your local prosecuting attorney candidates and their stance on cash bail. Let that impact how you vote. #VotingWhileBlack #WokeVoter #WokeVoterSTL #ByeBob #RingTheBell

Repost from @mspackyetti
- Cash Bail makes an already unfair system even more unjust. Rich people can afford it, poor people can’t, more money is thrown into a system that preys upon communities and doesn’t keep us safe. It’s past time to end cash bail. Watch and share my latest for @Mic.
and support organizations like @colorofchange
, and @verainstitute
who are leading this movement.
