Hampden County Launch Party!
June 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Massachusetts Bail Fund recently began taking referrals in Hampden County – we hope you can join us to mark the occasion!
This event is hosted by the Massachusetts Bail Fund and the Western Mass Prison Abolition Network. MBF Volunteers post bail of up to $500 for people who cannot afford their bail. The Western Mass Prison Abolition Network observes and reports courtroom practices in Springfield, fundraises and works to support incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people through building relationships with other organizations working on prison abolition and strategic reforms.
Volunteers from the Bail Fund will be present to talk about the work we do, but mostly we want to celebrate building the prison abolition movement throughout Western Mass!
We would be grateful if you would share this event widely, especially with organizers interested in collaborating around prison abolition and those directly affected by incarceration. We are hoping to get more people in the Springfield area familiar with this work, and we are still building relationships. Please invite people you know and help us spread the word!
