What is #FreeBlackMamas?
- #FreeBlackMamas is an annual campaign by the National Bail Out collective that seeks to raise awareness about the human and financial costs of money bail and emphasize its impact on Black mothers and caregivers. Every year since 2017, we have coordinated tactical bail outs nationwide to free as many Black mamas and caregivers as possible so they may spend Mother’s Day with their families — where they belong.
Who are S.O.U.L. Sisters Leadership Collective?
- Our mission is to mobilize systems-involved girls, femmes, and gender nonconforming folks of color – black, brown, and indigenous – to interrupt cycles of state violence, poverty, and oppression. Our four pillars are leadership, healing, social justice, and the arts.
