The Ultimate Mother's Day Gift for Incarcerated Women of Color
In April 2017, a group of nonprofits launched a campaign they're calling National Black Mama's Bail Out Day to protest these punitive penalties. The goal: raise funds to help release as many moms of color—along with caretaking grandmas and aunts—as possible by Mother's Day the following month. With donations exceeding $1 million, the crusade ultimately bailed out nearly 100 women.
And the cause marches on. So check out National Bail Out to contribute—and honor your mom this Mother's Day by helping someone else be with hers.
