Update #1

WOW. Thank you feels so inadequate, but... THANK YOU. The love from our community for our Mamas Day Bail Out was overwhelming: 414 supporters rallied to raise over $20,000, which enabled us to post 17 bonds to bail 14 Mamas out of 5 jails from May 10-12, 2018. Thank you!

We consider the Mother's Day action a success. But that success is just one step towards a more just community, a community free of exploitative money bail.

Our goal is to see an end to money bail entirely, and to that end we will continue to press for legislative action even while we continue to host Bail Outs. Look out for Denver's Juneteenth/Father's Day Bail Out, coming in June 2018: On we press!
