Peoples Bail Out NYC                        Attorney/Social Worker Requests
Thank you for requesting a community bail out for your client. Please complete this form, providing as much information as you can.

We receive many more requests than there are donations on hand to support. **We rely on information from you, your client's family, and your client to prioritize bail out support.** While funds are limited, we prioritize support exclusively for people facing the most immediate risks (physical, medical, mental, emotional) while in NYC jails. (Our financial limitations aside: EVERYONE DESERVES support; NO ONE SHOULD BE IN A CAGE.)

We will carefully review your request. If you haven't heard from us,  we had to prioritize support for other people in the jails. After submitting this form, you can reach out to us at to follow up or update us about your client. 

A note about timing: After we confirm we can organize the bail out and reserve funds for your client, it generally takes us at least one week to mobilize the community support.
