Amid COVID-19, we have launched our new campaign, #CARENOTCAGES, refocusing our efforts to release all people from Nevada jails and prisons, while demanding proper personal protective equipment for all incarcerated people, proper release services for everyone being released including financial, medical, mental health, and housing supports, and transparency on all in-custody deaths due to medical complications and COVID-19. Please follow our social media accounts for ways to be engaged in our work.

DRIVING FUNDS INTO THE VEGAS FREEDOM FUND
9AM & 5PM, Five Dollar Fridays - EVERY FRIDAY IS FIVE DOLLAR FRIDAY! Five Dollar Fridays is a social media campaign created to drive donations into the VEGAS FREEDOM FUND, our fundraiser to bail out our people. Due to Covid-19 currently spreading in Nevada jails and prisons, and the daily protests for George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, this fund is more crucial than ever, as literally every person inside is facing infection. Our funds go to bailouts and paying for release services.
Can you join our cause to free our people, reunite families,
The goal of the Vegas Freedom Fund is to raise money to post bail for people who are being forced to stay in jail simply because they cannot afford to post bail themselves.
Across the country we are seeing community bail funds being created to combat the effects of the cash bail system. Since May of 2017 over 14,000 people have donated to the National Bailout and helped bring nearly 200 people home to their families and communities, where they belong. We’ve been inspired by the successes of the National Bail Out, The Brooklyn Bail Fund, and many others to create our own community bail fund here in Nevada.
The goal of the Vegas Freedom Fund is to raise money to post bail for people who are being forced to stay in jail simply because they cannot afford to post bail themselves. This will be a long-term project which will have the potential to help many individuals and families.
Let’s make sure that our fellow community members have the support they need to continue to raise their children, keep their jobs, and not risk becoming institutionalized all because of lack of financial resources and our broken criminal justice system.
