The Audacious Project
How do we fix the broken US cash bail system? It starts with those most impacted.
Through his personal experience as a previously incarcerated person David Gaspar the National Director of Operations at the Bail Project understands that the impact of the US criminal legal system on individuals and families – especially the bail system – can be detrimental.
“Imagine a world where you have those who have been impacted working side by side with those who have the means to do something about it.” - David Gaspar, Bail Project.
Folks who are in jail because they cannot pay bail risk losing their jobs, housing, their children, or worse - and remember, these are people who have not been convicted of a crime.
David shares how by disrupting the cash bail system The Bail Project aims to turn the tide on mass incarceration in the US.
