    Hosted by LUCHA – Living United for Change in Arizona and ACLU of Arizona

    “The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona is partnering with Living United for Change in Arizona(LUCHA) to host a vigil for mothers who have not been convicted of a crime, yet will spend Mother’s Day behind bars simply because they cannot afford bail.

    Join us for a march from Phoenix City Hall to the Fourth Avenue Jail in Phoenix starting at 4:30 pm on Friday May 11. Once at the jail, a vigil will take place to share stories, support all imprisoned mothers, and present the harm that cash bail has on black and brown families in Arizona.
