Alamance County Bail Fund

The Alamance Community Bail Fund is a project of Down Home North Carolina, created and led by members of Down Home Alamance. We are a revolving bond fund that raises money from people throughout the country to help people who can’t afford to post bond in Alamance County.

Alamance County’s poverty rate is higher than the North Carolina state average. Down Home and our members are organizing against discriminatory pretrial incarceration based on income and believe people are more likely to win cases when fighting from a place of freedom. Please contribute to help sustain the Alamance Community Bail Fund. No one should be in jail just because they are poor.

Money, sometimes just a few hundred dollars, can be the difference between going home to their families and staying in jail for months. As a result, poor people end up stuck in jail simply because they are poor. Meantime, jobs are lost, children are left uncared for, and things fall apart. Learn more about the problems of cash bail here.
