Master of Public Policy (MPP) student Sara Joseph recently started a new position as the support coordinator for the Philadelphia Bail Fund. The Philadelphia Bail Fund is dedicated to ending the cash bail system. The fund pays bail at the earliest possible moment for people who are indigent and cannot afford bail—ideally before they are transferred from their holding cell to jail. The Philadelphia Bail Fund also subjects the impact of its work to evaluation and uses the results to educate policymakers and lobby for reform.

Joseph is expected to complete her MPP in 2021.

Congratulations, Sara!
