The National Bail Out Collective announced Tuesday that the third annual “Black Mama’s Bail Out Day” freed over 100 black mothers in over 35 cities — and counting — for Mother’s day. They also raised over $1 million. The nationwide campaign aims to call attention to the injustice of cash bail, while freeing as many black women from jail as possible.
