$5,000 Goal

The Denton Bail Fund started out as a GoFundMe campaign to bail out Denton protesters who were in danger of being arrested under the unconstitutional city curfew set in response to the June protests in honor of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. Originally, unused funds were to be donated to the Dallas Bail Fund. However, as the curfew was repealed and local protesters who were arrested had the support they needed, volunteers with the Denton Bail Fund decided to address the broader need for bail assistance and form a permanent bail fund.

Mission

The Denton Bail Fund is an all-volunteer collective of folks who believe that no one should be incarcerated simply because they cannot afford bail. We operate on a case-by-case basis and are completely dependent on community support for funding.

Equity Statement

Denton Bail Fund supports the full abolition of the racially unjust cash bail system. This system disproportionately affects low income individuals and people of color who are overrepresented throughout the carceral state.
