Spelman Works to Bail Out Black Mamas
May 18, 2017
On May 14, Mother’s Day, student leaders of URGE Spelman helped welcome home formerly incarcerated Black mothers. Days before, many women were release across the nation through the Mama’s Day Bailout, a national day of action illuminating the harsh realities of cash based bail out systems. More than 100 mothers were released in times for mother’s day. Our URGE Spelman students volunteered at the childcare station painting faces, giving away treats, and monitoring the bouncy house. They gave the mothers much needed self-care time! This homecoming was magical for all involved.
