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.
