A nonprofit devoted to reforming cash bail in Lancaster County is holding an event this weekend to raise money and increase awareness around local criminal justice issues.

The Lancaster Bail Fund says its inaugural “Trail 2 End Bail” “will guide participants past local landmarks of incarceration and feature educational displays about our bail system.”

The 3-mile walk will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 9, at Pavilion 2 in Lancaster County’s Central Park. It will last about an hour, concluding with a “celebration of liberty” at the pavilion in Reservoir Park, 832 E. Orange St., Lancaster, featuring speakers, live music and food.

A shuttle service back to the county park will be provided.

Registration costs $25 and includes a T shirt, snacks and lunch. To sign up, click here.

Led by Michelle Batt, the Lancaster Bail Fund opposes pretrial incarceration. It operates a revolving fund to provide bail to accused individuals who could not otherwise secure their release.
