Help Bring Dads Home This Father's Day
Thousands of fathers remain unjustly caged in jails because they can't afford to buy their freedom.
For Father's Day, a coalition of community activists are posting bail to secure their freedom.
Our goal is to raise 20K for a bailout in Gainesville, FL.
Incarcerated, even for a day, an individual is at risk of violence and losing employment, custody of children and housing.
While those with means are released from confinement, those in poverty face only injurious choices: languish at risk, or accept deportation or a guilty plea to get out of jail—often to crimes they didn’t commit.
One in nine Black children has a parent jailed. The majority of these parents haven't been convicted of any crime.
Help #FreeTheDads Bailout reunite families.
This initiative is supported by a variety of social justice and grassroots groups, including LEAH and Fight Toxic Prisons.
Funds raised will be used for the #FreeTheDads Bailout and may be used at a later date to continue the work of the Freedom Fund, a project of the Florida-based Freedom Fund Network, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. To learn more about the Freedom Fund, please visit lgbtqfund.org.
