Emergency Bail Out Action
Miami, FL

With COVID-19 spreading rapidly, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and local partners are moving quickly to facilitate emergency bail outs at jails across the country, including those in Miami’s Broward and Miami-Dade Counties.

Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, in partnership with the Freedom Fund, has taken urgent action to secure the release of those held in pretrial detention, a step that will limit the spread of the disease among those incarcerated and jail staff alike. 

While the global health crisis has intensified the need to reduce jail populations, RFK Human Rights president Kerry Kennedy has long called for reforms to unlawful cash bail systems across the country, recognizing how they've unjustly targeted and harmed poor, black and brown communities.
