Our focus is on Black women and mothers trapped in the unjust system of pay-to-play civil liberties. Women should have the opportunity to be free from jail and in the company of their families on Mother's Day, and every day.   

Our goal is to raise $20,000 and with the help of community referrals and referrals from public defenders, identify eligible women and mothers to free from pretrial detention, reuniting them with their families during the month of May.

We will provide an accounting of how many women for whom we post bail and the amount of bail paid. Unused funds will be used to continue PFF's mission of posting bail for vulnerable populations throughout the year.

This Mother's Day we ask you to give what you can, in dollars or attention, to this campaign. Countless advocates in cities across the United States are working tirelessly to end the exploitative cash bail system. Join us!
