Bail Out Black Mamas!

Goal Thermometer

In the spirit of Harriet Tubman and other strategic radical abolitionists, Color of Change is collaborating with Southerners On New Ground, Movement for Black Lives and several activist organizations and putting our skills, resources and money together to pay for our loved ones’ freedom. It's called National Mama’s Bail Out Day, and we are bailing out women across the country. At least 80 percent of women caged behind bars are mothers who have only been accused of minor offenses but not found guilty. The reason they are still in jail and separated from their families is because they are too poor to afford bail.

We have the power to right this wrong and provide Black women with their human right to be treated innocent until proven guilty. But we still need $20,000 to make sure National Mamas Bail Out Day reaches the airwaves and these women have the media coverage and support needed when they are bailed out.

Will you chip-in to make the reuniting of these women with their families visible and demand an end to modern-day debtors prisons?
