As many of you know, Robin Steinberg, founder of The Bronx Defenders, stepped down from her organization last year to launch The Bail Project, a new national bail fund and initiative to combat pretrial incarceration. Two weeks ago, Robin delivered a powerful talk at the TED conference on the urgency of this issue and her ambitious plan for The Bail Project: 40 sites over the next 5 years, each with the capacity to bail out 1000 people annually. The Bail Project is on a mission to bail out as many people as possible and demonstrate money bail is not only unjust, but also unnecessary.
