Daily Action: Community Bond Funds

Friends, in November I was made aware of a great Chicago organization: Chicago Community Bond Fund. On their website, they outline the unjustness of bonds, specifically as it relates to Cook County Jail:

While there are signs that bail and bond policies around the country are beginning to change (as shown in Washington, DC in the John Oliver segment above), there is still much to be done at this moment to help individuals who are cannot afford their bond today.

If you're interested in donating to a bond fund charity, please see the list below from Bail Bond Network. They've also created a great infographic that outlines exactly how your donation will be put to use.
