I'm thrilled that this week people donated millions to #bailfunds to get folks out of jail

Now we need to ask why the state is permitted to charge ransom when arresting people

#Bail & jail serve no useful purpose and are part of the anti-Black prison industrial complex

Thread:
The bail bond system has preyed on the poor for decades

Black people are more likely to be required to pay bond & in higher amounts, for the same charge

A system that releases a person who can pay, but incarcerates one who lacks the means, is a debtors prison

@BelieverBailOut
Think of how traumatizing it is to be in jail for *one night* in the middle of a pandemic.

Now think of the people being held for months and years in places like Cook County Jail, run by Chicago's @SheriffTomDart

Right now we are seeing so many folks generously give however much they can to help the people and organizations doing important work.

Today I gave to two very different non-profits doing critical work: @MNFreedomFund and @CampReelStories
Thanks to @ebonyaster for suggesting @mnfreedomfund as a place to support. As their twitter bio says, "Fighting back against #Minnesota's unjust #bail system and paying #immigrant bonds."

The more people who have the resources and skills to tell their own stories will make a profound impact. Which is why I support @campreelstories! They teach girls and non-binary youth to thoughtfully and critically make their own media.

1/ Look what arrived by mail today. Watch for a ritual burning at the end of this thread.

A thread tweeting quotes from "The Power of a Whisper" (TPOAW), by unrepentant sexual predator, bully, and con-man Bill Hybels, who is still being protected by @GLNsummit & @WillowCreekCC
@GLNsummit @WillowCreekCC 2/ Dedication Page: "To @DickDeVos & Betsy, & Ron & Sharon VanderPol--Only on the other side will the four of you know how much your friendship & support have meant to the Hybels family & to the global Willow family"

~Bill Hybels, "The Power of a Whisper", 2010
3/ I note that @glnsummit board chairman billionaire Dick Devos, to whom Bill dedicated this book, has overseen Global Leadership Network's ongoing cover-up of Bill Hybels' sexual crimes since 2014.
