The Bail Project helps women in trouble

Businessman Robert Shumake is looking for all local Kim Kardashian types. Well, not really, but he is looking for local women who have compassion for incarcerated women. “Women’s incarceration has grown at twice the rate of men in the last few decades, and this rate is even higher for women and girls of color,” says Shumake. “As the new chair of the Ebony Foundation, I feel compelled to support this community effort.” Throughout the month of March, which is Women’s History Month, the Ebony Foundation and the Bail Project are launching their first “10x10 Campaign” to raise awareness about this critical issue and bring some of the women home. “We are looking to enlist 10 women who will commit to securing freedom for 10 others by helping us pay their bail.” Each participant will have a fundraising goal of $2,000 per person, which represents an average bail amount that the Bail Project pays.
