Equal Justice Initiative

NAACP Legal Defense & Educ Fund Inc
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund is America's legal counsel on issues of race. Through advocacy and litigation, LDF focuses on issues of education, voter protection, economic justice and criminal justice. We encourage students to embark on careers in the public interest through scholarship and internship programs. LDF pursues racial justice to move our nation toward a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans.
The Bail Project
The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system — one person at a time.
We believe that paying bail for someone in need is an act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty and an act of solidarity with local communities and movements for decarceration.
Over the next five years, The Bail Project will open dozens of sites in high-need jurisdictions with the goal of paying bail for tens of thousands of low-income people.
We won’t stop until meaningful change is achieved and the presumption of innocence is no longer for sale.
