Father's Day/Juneteenth Bail Out

Black Lives Matter / Memphis Community Bail Fund

For many of us, our fathers mean the world to us and Father's Day is a day when we take time out to celebrate and honor the fathers and father-like figures in our life. But unfortunately, the money bail system separates families and makes it impossible for many fathers and their children to be together on Father's Day.

    No should ever have to remain in jail simply because they cannot afford bail. This is blatant classism, is neither fair nor just, and creates 21st century debtors' prisons.

    Thank you for organizing this. People not convicted of crimes should not be kept in jail indefinitely just because they are poor. Fathers need to be with their children until/unless convicted of a crime.

    Bail is abused in Shelby County. People who will come to court should be let out to work and support their families.

About Father's Day/Juneteenth Bail Out

The Memphis Community Bail Fund is bailing out Fathers and other community members in celebration of Juneteenth and Father's Day.  Our goal is: to raise funds to help cover the costs of bail and supportive services while raising awareness about the issues that exist with the money bail system and the impact of bail on community members and the people we love. It is estimated that an average of 700,000 people are separated from their families and condemned to jail simply because they cannot afford to pay bail. 

This is an opportunity to draw attention to the huge injustice of the money bail system and help create the world we want to live in. Through our bailouts, we are inviting community members into a conversation about the money bail system and jails. We are also working with families and community stakeholders to experiment with creating a strong supportive services infrastructure that can hold our people in humane and dignified ways. We know through our bail work that providing people with the resources they need to thrive reduces their encounters with the criminal legal system and in turn, decreases recidivism.
