Dear YGB Community,

 

We know that the Dane County Jail’s bail system is designed to penalize poor people and people of color. While people of privilege can afford to pay their bail and walk free, the poorest - most often people of color - are locked behind bars. And when they do manage to get out, they are often welcomed back into the same lack of resources that contributed to their need to survive.This is yet another way that our incarceration system criminalizes race and class.

But now, we have a radical way to fight back. The Free the 350 Bail Fund, which was just established during YGB Actions in 2016, has been recently revived. It’s an online fundraiser that will raise money to directly bail out and support poor people of color from the Dane County Jail. We can free ourselves!

Every dollar raised will be put towards releasing Black folks from the chains of mass incarceration - directly addressing the jail’s racial disparity.

 

Just this month, the current Free the 350 Bail Fund has already freed Mr. Robert Love from the Dane County Jail. With your generous support, we could bring so many more back to home, work or school. We could set so many more free.
