Grant Info

A community bail fund that combats mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system one person at a time. It works nationally to provide a lifeline for the tens of thousands of low-income Americans who, on any given day, are at risk of pretrial incarceration due to their economic status and race. In 2017, it expanded its revolving-fund model to a national level, with 40 sites in high-need jurisdictions planned to open over the next five years, helping over 160,000 low-income Americans.  We are encouraged by its momentum, and the powerful stories and data that indicate money bail is not necessary to ensure people return to court.

Good Fight Grants

A national litigation and policy organization that works to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment. Through exonerating the wrongly convicted through DNA testing, it exposes systemic defects in the criminal justice system, which holds almost 2.3 million people. The stories of the 350 people exonerated so far have stirred a public awakening and ignited a new justice movement. It is preparing to tackle the system’s deep systematic failures — racial bias, over-reliance on guilty pleas, the lack of accountability for prosecutors, and inadequate public defense systems — through education, advocacy, litigation and research-based reforms.

Good Fight Grants

An organization that helps immigrant and refugee children who come to the United States without a legal guardian, most of whom are fleeing trafficking, gang violence, or sexual and gender-based violence. They come seeking safety, but find new challenges. KIND helps to ensure that children appearing in immigration court have high quality legal representation and to advance laws, policies, and practices that uphold their right to due process and fundamental fairness. It also works to address the root causes of migration to the United States, including the pervasive violence that forces children without parents and families with young children to embark on a life-threatening journey of thousands of miles to seek safety.

Good Fight Grants

A national project that works with organizers, advocates, and legal providers across the country that are using, or contemplating using, community bail funds as part of efforts to radically change local bail systems and reduce incarceration. The Network was established in September 2016 and is made up of over 40 community bail funds that use the regular payment of bail as well as strategic bail out actions in campaigns to end money bail and pretrial detention in both the criminal legal and immigration detention systems. It is built upon the important work of bail funds assisting individuals attain their freedom while building community capacity and a coordinated advocacy force.
