Bail Payer Volunteer Sign-Up
Thank you for offering to post bail for a neighbor with COVID Bail Out NYC! We are a people-powered, grassroots initiative created to get people out of NYC jails and support them after release. Together, we're saving lives and building communities during the pandemic, which is raging in New York City jails. Over 80 percent of people caged in NYC jails are waiting for trial and have not been convicted of a crime. They are locked up in increasingly dangerous conditions simply because they cannot afford bail.

In-person bail poster requirements: Pick up a check from one of our organizers. Take that check to any bail window in NYC. Bail windows are located in DOC jails in lower Manhattan, downtown Brooklyn, South Bronx, and Kew Gardens, Queens. Plan to spend 2-5 hours at or near the bail window.

Online bail poster requirements: Have a credit or debit card to pay bail on the DOC website. We will advance or reimburse the funds.

Other requirements: Make sure to wear a mask and gloves while traveling outside of your home. Review our detailed bail paying info sheet after signing up. Be awesome! Show solidarity!!
