We are fighting for equity and a fairer criminal justice system for all people.
We advocate for ending pretrial detention while working to minimize the harm of the cash bail system by paying bail for people who would otherwise spend the pre-trial time in jail, resulting in damaged work and social connections, and an increased pressure to plead guilty.
We currently operate in King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties in Washington State.
We are a registered 501(c)3 organization, and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. EIN 83-1096468

Poor people accused of crimes face a stark choice: stay in jail to fight the case or plead guilty and go home.
This creates a system in which innocent people plead guilty because they can’t afford bail.
The Northwest Community Bail Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
