This year we’re joining the National Bailout movement to bail out mama’s incarcerated in Clark County. Right now, instead of being with their children, mama’s are locked up because of inability to pay fines and fees associated with tickets and traffic violations.
Everyday tens of thousands of people languish in jail simply because they cannot afford bail. In addition to the over $9 billion wasted to incarcerate people who have been convicted of no crime, pre-trial incarceration has catastrophic impacts on families and communities. Even a few days in jail can ruin a person’s life. They may lose their job,their family may lose housing and some even lose their children.
We are raising money to bail out mamas this year, and need your help. Your contribution—anything from $5 to $500—can liberate a woman in our community and ensure she spends Mother’s Day with her family, and not locked in a cage. Click here to contribute.
Money put them in, but love will bail them out.
