You are not alone! Over 1 million people living in California have bail debt, too.
Alone we are vulnerable, but together we are powerful. Let's work together to abolish bail debt, establish full pretrial freedom, and take abolitionist steps to end the Prison Industrial Complex.
The Debt Collective is a movement of people who hold debt or overdue bills and our allies. We work with partners and organizations across the state to bring people with debt together to take on the predatory companies who take money from our communities. To do this, we raise our voices, run strategic campaigns, and fight back against the bail bond industry; read more about our strategy.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED IN THIS FIGHT?
If you are cosigned on someone else’s bail debt, the first step to getting involved is to fill out the Abolish Bail Debt Tool. This free tool will allow you to dispute your bail bond debt AND will connect you with the Bail Debtors Union the Debt Collective is creating.
If you aren’t eligible to use the tool, we still need you to join the fight. Learn how to get involved here!
