Money Injustice

End money injustice.

We should end the travesty of money injustice. There are more than 700,000 people in U.S. jails. About two-thirds of them have not been convicted of a crime yet have been locked up mostly because they cannot make bail. Money injustice—through bail, fines, and fees—is driving much of the increase in local jail populations across the country, extracting hard-earned dollars from communities of color, and keeping too many people in jail or otherwise involved with the criminal legal system for far too long.
