Pittsburgh Bail Fund

The Elsinore-Bennu Think Tank for Restorative Justice develops strategies to heal communities broken by criminal and state violence. This process brings the victims, the offenders, and the community together to resolve collectively how to deal with the aftermath of the offense and its implications for the future. Formed in 2013 by six men (Fly, Faruq, Khalifa, Malakki, Oscar, Shawn) serving life or near-life sentences at the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution in Pittsburgh, the group's name reflects both Hamlet’s grim Elsinore castle and Bennu, the Egyptian symbol of rebirth.

As part of our mission and stated goals, we have come to the realization that a fund dedicated to health of our communities is critical, especially now. As this global health crisis further threatens the welfare of incarcerated citizens, it is crucial that we do all we can to keep our loved ones and community members in their homes. The most marginalized of us are the most at risk and so, we must put forth the most effort in keeping them safe.
