Free the Block

A group of smiling people sitting a table doing radical crafts

At this moment, thousands of Black and brown people are sitting in local jails while they await their trial simply because they can’t afford to pay bail.

These people have not been convicted of anything, they are sitting in a cage because they can’t afford to pay for their freedom.

Free the Block is a campaign to end money bail and pre-trial detention in Miami-Dade County and Tampa. Inspired campaigns for criminal justice and bail reform happening all over the country, Dream Defenders and other partner organizations are collecting thousands of petition signatures to make the case for adopting alternatives to money bail and pre-trial detention that are far more effective and humane.
