A world where
freedom is the standard

For all people.

MFF Action is working to end wealth-based jailing once and for all and put the Minnesota Freedom Fund out of business.

We're building on the success of the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

In 2021, Minnesota Freedom Fund paid 647 pre-trial bails, totaling more than $6 million. But we know that reducing systemic harms by paying pre-trial bails is not enough to finally end the cash bail system in Minnesota. That’s why we launched MFF Action to work through lobbying, advocacy, and education to create lasting, transformative, and systemic change in our racist, wealth-based pre-trial and immigration systems.

Our Mission

MFF Action engages in lobbying, endorses candidates, and organizes the community as we seek to end pre-trial detention and stop the harms of the immigration system in Minnesota.

Our Vision

MFF Action envisions a world where freedom is the standard for all people and where the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which pays cash bails and immigration bonds for people who cannot otherwise afford to, is no longer needed to mitigate the harms of unjust and oppressive systems.

Our goals

  • To create Systemic Change in Minnesota’s Criminal Legal System and in the Federal Immigration System
  • Elect Supportive Leaders at the City, County, State and Federal Levels
  • Educate and Organize the Community
