In this community-led discussion we discussed resources, and the roles incarceration, prison reform and prison abolition play within the Muslim Ummah in Chicago, the United States and abroad. This event was intended to shed light on these important subjects and foster a rich community conversation.

Our introduction to Believers Bail Out:

“Money bail targets poor people of color, takes away their freedom and puts their families, communities and lives in danger. This Ramadan, pay your Zakat to bail out believers and join the movement to end mass incarceration.”
