In this episode of ACTIVATE, artists and activists Common and Usher team up with Global Citizen and grassroots organizers to fight for historic criminal justice reform by ending the use of cash bail in New York state.

Common goes to Brooklyn to bail out a woman who’s unable to afford it, and Global Citizen takes viewers behind the scenes of its 2018 Festival, as their team works to get New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to pledge his support to push through bail reform. These efforts helped lead to historic New York state Legislation that was passed in April 2019, which included a budget that eliminates cash bail for most misdemeanor and nonviolent felony charges.
