#Project​​BlackBird:
Reimagining Freedom.



Why are we bailing people out of jail?
Because a body isn't a commodity.

On any given day, 80% of people sitting in Oklahoma County jail have NOT been convicted of anything.  Many have not seen a judge.  
For some, sitting in jail is an alternative to paying off debt. For all, the hours, days, weeks, and months will ultimately affect their entire lives. The only reason they sit in jail? Because they don't have enough money to get out. 
We believe poverty should not be a reason to deprive individuals of their freedom or their presumption of innocence.
who we are

#ProjectBlackbird is an organization advocating for the liberation of communities most impacted by Oklahoma’s cash bail system. We raise bail funds for individuals who are forced to remain in jail, prior to any conviction, due to their inability to pay. 

By allowing folks an opportunity remain in the workforce, nurture their children, and seek services that discourage recidivism, recipients can resume their lives without detrimental interruptions. Within our work, we disturb the normalization of mass incarceration through arts, education, & media.

Project Blackbird is  dedicated to the freedom of communities of color.
