Tomorrow marks 1 week since we officially began our 2019 Holiday Youth Bailout! Our goal is to raise $50,000 this season in order to reunite children locked up in adult prison with their families. We are working with @Yasproject to identify and support children to be bailed out.
As of this morning, we've raised $7,858 in online donations! Thank you! If you'd like to help free a child this season, you can give at phillybailout.com/donate
Circle Mobilizing Because Black Lives Matter is hosting the third annual Turn Up to Bail Out Saturday November 9th from 7 to 10:30 PM at 1125 S Broad Street! Join us for a night of music, food, and local vendors as we raise money to support our Holiday Bail Outs! Help us get more of our friends and neighbors free while enjoying a night of Black music and joy! Tickets are just $15. Get your ticket today at Eventbrite!
Since Mama's Bail Out in May of this year, we've bailed out 62 of our neighbors with another 4 approved and waiting to be bailed out! That accounts for $2,220,700 dollars in set bail! Of that amount, we posted $267,070 to get folk free.
This was all possible due to your steadfast support! We are temporarily closed to new requests as our fund is just about tapped out. We are counting on some of this bail money to be returned as cases close, but in the meantime more of our neighbors are languishing in jail waiting for their day in court.
Will you help us get up and running again? You can donate at phillybailout.com/donate Or join us for a dance party and celebration Friday night from 6 to 11pm at Asian Arts Initiative. Tickets start at just $15 and support our bail fund! Get your tickets today at https://bit.ly/2MtGs83
