Teams are assembled to research who is currently being held because they are unable to pay bail, to assist with social service coordination if those bailed out want supportive resources, to ensure the bail process is done properly in each region, and to host a celebration party for our families and communities. 100% of funds raised will go toward this specific project. The research and bail out committee will prioritize Black mamas. In the event that we fundraise an abundance of resources or face obstacles on bailing out specific people, we will have clear criteria and process on who we will bail out next: prioritizing women of color and moms. Any additional resources after the bailouts will be put toward the celebration. We will post updates on the amount fundraised and how it is spent. Michigan Liberation is holding the funds. The organization is a 501c4 organization. Donations are not tax-deductible.
