Help Launch Our Mother’s Day Bail-Out Campaign April 7!
by Connecticut Bail Fund
Each day, hundreds of Connecticut women are incarcerated merely because they cannot afford to pay bail. Most of them are mothers and caretakers, women of color, and survivors of violence and trauma. Many of them are criminalized for acts of self-defense.
We are coming together to organize in solidarity with incarcerated women and girls and to demand an end to the vicious criminalization of our mothers and caretakers. Leading up to Mother’s Day, we will be working to free as many women as possible from pretrial and immigration jail.
Join a coalition of Connecticut organizations, led by Connecticut Bail Fund, who are coming together to free incarcerated mothers for Mother’s Day.
April 7 at 4:30 p.m. come to the Mother’s Day Bail Fund party at Bregamos Community Theater, 491 Blatchley Ave.
The event will feature:
- A panel of formerly incarcerated women and women whose loved ones have been impacted by the carceral state.
- Food and drinks
- Button, sticker, and t-shirt sales
- Music and dancing
- Letter writing to express solidarity to women who are incarcerated.
