On the morning of Thursday June 14th, we are bailing out Black dads and caregivers in time for Father's Day. The system of money bail harms Philadelphia's families, imprisoning Black fathers and caretakers simply because they cannot afford to post bail. Children, elderly and ill family members, and communities rely on Black dads and caretakers for support, love, and guidance. Even a few days in jail for a Black dad can mean the loss of a job, housing, custody of children, and stability for a family.
Your donation will help free Black dads and caretakers in time for Father's Day. You'll also be ensuring that we have the ability to post bail for all Philadelphians held on unaffordable cash bail throughout the year as we work to #EndCashBail.
