Black and Brown people across the state, and our poorest residents, bear the brunt of our badly broken bail system. If you can’t afford to pay your bail, you stay locked in jail, waiting for your day in court. Just a few days behind bars can cost a person their job, home, and even custody of their kids.

Activists and lawmakers across the state are working hard to fix this tragically flawed system by advocating for bail reform legislation. You can, too.

Join the movement and the ACLU of Michigan's virtual community forum, Capitol Conversations: Fixing Michigan’s Broken Bail System, where Michiganders and lawmakers will come together to advocate for bail reform legislation. We know reforming our bail system will have a powerful impact on ending systemic racism and reducing the number of people needlessly sitting in Michigan jails.

Together, we can transform Michigan’s broken bail system so that it works for all of us.
