Central Ohio Freedom Fund is a Black-led, Black-centered organization which exists to work toward elimination of cash bail and pretrial detention. We serve communities in Central Ohio by using a revolving fund for bailouts, providing public education, and advocating for radical systemic transformations which create conditions for a sustainable future.

collective liberation

Our values are shaped by the movement for Black liberation which envisions a future where people around the world are free from white supremacist, heteropatriarchal, capitalist death-generating systems and institutions. While we work toward the abolition of cash bail, pretrial detention, prisons, and slave labor within our lifetime we also understand that many things are tied to the struggle and necessary for success including the ability to access housing, healthcare, food security, childcare, education, employment, and more.
