Charis House Party For Mother's Day Black Mamas Bail Out says
Since 1980 the number of incarcerated women has grown by 700%. Black women and Trans women are especially vulnerable to incarceration. Black women are twice as likely as their white counterparts to be jailed. One in five transgender women have spent time in prison or jail and one in three of them reported being sexually assaulted while there.

Mother's Day is approaching, and we can think of no better gift than to join the campaign to help incarcerated mothers post bail and spend Mother's Day with their families. The Black Mamas Bail Out is for all mamas and all of our families, chosen or otherwise. Thanks to the amazing organizing of SONG (Southerners on New Ground), The National Black Mama's Bail Out Day campaign is well underway. SONG is focusing specifically on freeing the most vulnerable women, black and trans women, for Mother’s day.

Please join us for a family friendly "house party" at Charis to eat, drink fun non-alcoholic beverages, and donate to The National Black Mama's Bail Out Action. Let's #fundthefeministfuture together and get as many Mamas as possible home. Children are welcome. There is not a specific suggested donation but we ask that you come ready to give as generously as possible via cash, check, or online donation. If you are a mother, consider asking your family to donate to the fund in honor of you.


Can't make it? You can donate directly to bit.ly/freeblackmamasfund.
