Biography
Robin Steinberg is CEO of The Bail Project, a national organization modeled after The Bronx Freedom Fund, which she cofounded with David Feige in 2007. The Bail Project combats mass incarceration at the front end by paying bail for tens of thousands of low-income Americans at risk of pretrial detention.

Steinberg is also the founder and former executive director of The Bronx Defenders, a community-based public defense office serving low-income New Yorkers in the Bronx since 1997, and the director of Still She Rises, Tulsa, the first public defender office in the nation dedicated exclusively to the representation of mothers in the criminal justice system.

Steinberg is currently a Gilbert Foundation Senior Fellow of the Criminal Justice Program at UCLA School of Law, where she works with faculty and students on bail reform initiatives and research.

The Bail Project

The Bail Project is a nonprofit organization designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system—one person at a time. Over the next five years, The Bail Project will work with local partners to open dozens of sites in high-need jurisdictions and pay bail for tens of thousands of low-income people, reducing the human suffering caused by unaffordable cash bail and building on the work of grassroots groups and movements for decarceration.
