Reunification Ride Returns!

Reunification Ride Returns!

From Moms United

It's been awhile, due to pandemic and other barriers, but we are bringing kids to visit their moms inside Logan for Mother's Day month, and hopefully every month, until all are home. We just need to raise some funds!

Oh wow! We did it, dear community! Thank you so much!! We are so grateful for each and every donation. The moms inside will be so happy to know that they will have visits soon, but also that so many people care so much.

Every dollar is going toward that trip in May, plus the insurance that will secure the program for the next year. Anything over the $9,000 goal will go to future trips and we hope to get back on track with monthly visits, between Logan and Decatur prisons soon.

We will do this until all our free and the doors are closed forever. Thank you for all you do. Solidarity!!

More Info

Thanks to a community of support, Reunification Ride made monthly trips to Logan prison, and some of Decatur, from May of 2016 until the pandemic stopped everything in February of 2020. Given the cost of those visits, including the 340 mile round trip from Chicago, many families relied on this bus. Not only was Reunification Ride free to participants, it created a broader community of support and services, as well as a richer visit, where moms, kids and caregivers (often maternal grandmas) could eat a meal together, play games, make art and more. Thank you to all who helped make that happen.

Now that (limited) visits inside have resumed, Reunification Ride is coming back! Only we need your help again. We plan to make a trip to Logan this Mother's Day month, and we've got about half the funds we need to make it happen. 

Can you help? Any amount moves us closer to our goal. Any support you can offer by encouraging your networks to donate is super helpful too! Let's do this for moms and kids, until all our home again, truly reunited with family and this growing community of support and solidarity.

Update #1

We're nearly halfway to our goal in one day! Thank you to all who support Reunification Ride, and more than this, incarcerated parents and their kids. We will keep this bus going to Logan until there are no more people captured inside, there, or inside any other form of incarceration. Thank you for being in community with us!
