Was your spouse or nephew sent to Rikers or the Boat on bail? Are they at high risk of harm, if exposed to Covid-19 and/or the violence and isolation within a cage? Thousands of people are captive in NYC jails right now because they cannot afford punitively high bail. Many face life-threatening risks and other trauma, daily.

We want to hear about your loved one or client. We currently prioritize people in on bail, who face immediate dangers inside jail, whether from the uncontrolled spread of Covid-19 or the daily violence experienced on Rikers and the Boat. 

If bail is set, we can work with you to organize ways it can be paid, regardless of the charges.  We're everyday New Yorkers, who mobilized during the Covid-19 crisis to collectively get our people, our neighbors out of NYC jails and into the safety of communities. We rely entirely on donations to do this work. If you can support, click here.

* We accept calls only from people who are incarcerated, and their friends & family.

In response to repression of mass uprisings in NYC, Covid Bail Out also organizes community support to bail out protesters incarcerated in NYC jails. Our commitment 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 builds 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
