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.


Ask Covid Bail Out NYC to pay the bail.

Fill out a simple online form for lawyers or friends/family

Or give us a call.*


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 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 organizing bail outs for 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 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 organize their bail out via the links above.
