The Bail Project | Oklahoma City, OK
Apply

Position Summary:

Bail Disruptors are community members across the country committed to racial and economic justice. They are the core of The Bail Project, securing people’s release, disrupting the criminal legal system, and fighting mass incarceration. We are expanding operations to Gary and are looking for new Bail Disruptors to support our growing team on the ground!

Responsibilities:

Bail Disruptors are tasked with posting bail for those who cannot afford to purchase their freedom. Disruptors pay bail from local courts and jails, meet with TBP clients, remind them about upcoming court dates, and refer them to necessary services to support them after release.

In addition to securing our clients’ freedom, Bail Disruptors uphold our holistic model by working within the local community and collaborating with our central management team in the fight against this system. This will entail collecting client and court data, giving clients an advocacy platform, and establishing local partnerships to expose the problems of the pretrial system that make TBP’s work necessary.

Our work will be widely published and made available to partner organizations that are focusing on advocacy, litigation, and legislation. By diligently cataloging our results and empowering our clients to take center stage in the fight against mass incarceration, Bail Disruptors allow us to expose the injustices of our current wealth-based criminal legal system.

Qualifications:

You are driven, highly organized, and have a deep commitment to The Bail Project’s mission to eliminate race and wealth-based disparities in our criminal justice system. Applicants must be willing to work independently as well as in collaborative teams. Applicants may need to work non-traditional hours and will need to have access to a reliable vehicle. A sense of humor, innovative spirit, and willingness to adapt to the change inherent to a rapidly scaling start-up are essential.

To excel in this role, you likely bring the following:

  • Strong investment in the local community and in the fight for racial and economic justice
  • Demonstrated interest and experience in racial and social justice or criminal legal reform
  • A self-motivated, flexible, and hard-working approach
  • Excellent organizational abilities
  • Strong decision-making and communication skills
  • Basic ability in Excel or willingness to learn
  • Excellent organizational abilities and ability to handle multiple projects
