There are people in IDOC who have not been allowed outside nor allowed commissary for months. It's time to end this.

The Illinois house has just voted in support of the Pretrial Fairness Act! Our bill to #EndMoneyBail is being sent to @GovPritzker’s desk!

This is only possible because of the incredible amount of work communities across the state have done to make this dream a reality.

Illinois is poised to become the first state to completely eliminate the use of cash bail, thanks to joint efforts by the IL Legislative Black Caucus and activists from organizations like @endmoneybond.

In Jan of 2020, we welcomed the IL Network for Pretrial Justice to BN to continue the work towards ending money bond in IL. After years of advocacy @endmoneybond and thousands of organizers across the state came together to end cash bail with HB 3653 SFA2. This is historic!

Quoted @mdoukmas

Cash bail is abolished in Illinois. This means the only people who'll be in jail pre-trial are those who a judge decides are a true danger to others. We'll see if this will lower the bar for what's considered "dangerous" or actually restore presumption of innocence to more folks.

.@endmoneybond has been very clear our goal was to reduce jailing. The bill passed actually raises & clarifies the standard for detention decisions & includes many other protections for accused people. Ending money bond & locking more people up is a real fear, but not here.

Quoted @RepSlaughter

I am so proud we were able to pass the criminal justice reform omnibus bill in the House. This bill is monumental and I cannot say thank you enough to the countless organizers and organizations who've, over several years of hard work, helped us get to this moment.

Thank you, @RepSlaughter, for your principled and steadfast leadership in the house! This will be transformative for all Illinoisans, but especially the Black communities most targeted by criminalization.
