Lancaster Bail Fund is an initiative to help address the issue of cash bail and end the practice of pretrial incarceration in the community. The fund was established to assist those who are unable to post bail due to financial insecurity. They connect with individuals in the justice system who have been incarcerated pending trial and will remain incarcerated indefinitely without intervention. The organization is entirely volunteer based, and the fund is rotating, so they are able to apply the funds continuously as new individuals seek assistance during pretrial incarceration. Volunteers understand that pretrial incarceration is unjust, but also that it imposes significant financial and family burdens on the loved ones of those await trial. Without bail, many individuals lose access to employment, putting them further into poverty and making it difficult to return to the community even when found innocent and released from custody.
