REQUEST BAIL PAYMENT
Is your spouse or nephew on Rikers, just waiting for trial? Is your client at the Tombs, and at high risk of harm, if exposed to Covid-19 and/or the violence and isolation within a cage? Nearly 3,000 people are captive in NYC jails because they cannot afford punitively high bail. Many face life-threatening risks and other trauma, daily.
Ask COVID Bail Out NYC to pay the bail.
Or give us a call.*
We want to hear about your loved one or client. We currently prioritize people in on bail, who face acute dangers inside jail, whether from the uncontrolled spread of Covid-19 or the daily violence experienced on Rikers, the Boat, at the Tombs and Crossroads.
If bail is set, we can work towards paying it, regardless of the charges. We do not have the restrictions of a charitable bail fund nor the predatory practices of a bail bonds company. We are everyday New Yorkers, who mobilized during the Covid-19 crisis to get our people out of NYC jails and into the safety of communities. We rely entirely on donations to do this work.

* We accept calls from people who are incarcerated, and their friends & family.
In response to repression of mass uprisings in NYC, Covid Bail Out is bailing out protesters incarcerated in NYC jails. Our mission to end the caging of our people is aligned with the demands of protesters confronting the State on the ground. Material solidarity and radical mutual aid for everyone criminalized helps build a world where everyone is free to thrive.
If your client or loved one was arrested at a NYC protest, had bail set, and is now incarcerated, call or text us at 929-244-0586. If your client or loved one was criminalized by the same racist and repressive State, and can be bailed out from a NYC jail, ask us to pay their bail via the links above.
