Campaign Bails Out Jailed Moms

Women's Media Center

Kristal Brent Zook, PhD, a journalist, author, and professor in the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, writes about the National Bail Out movement in her latest piece for Women’s Media Center.  She notes that the movement is “a collective effort to end pretrial detention and, eventually, the mass incarceration of black and brown people.” Black women, in particular, are twice as likely as white women to be arrested and jailed for common offenses such as traffic violations.  Read how the bail out campaign aims to bring moms jailed in an unjust system home in time for Mother’s Day.
