Tell U.S. Senate: Stand with Black women and reform money bail!
This summer, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris introduced the Pretrial Integrity and Safety Act, an unprecedented grant program for communities wanting to enforce local bail reform. If passed, this law will decrease the population of Black people caged behind bars and accepting false plea deals just because they can't afford bail. Sign the Petition!
Tell Congress to Protect Black Immigrants!
01/22/2018--UPDATE: The United States Congress ended a government shutdown but leaves out protections for DACA and TPS recipients. This is all because Congressional Democrat members caved to Republicans and Trump. Now Congress has until February 8th to come up with real legislation for a clean Dream Act and extends protections for Temporary Protected Status recipients. There is no time to wait. Sign the Petition!
