"...we’ve separated and broken families for decades through our continued, unapologetic, dehumanizing use of #massincarceration as our means of criminal justice, inflicting irreparable, generational harm and trauma, particularly on communities of color," - Public Defender @thesajidakhan link in bio #keepfamiliestogether

AB931 Passed to appropriations! #protectyourpeople

De-Bug spent the week with our family in Philadelphia -- working with them as they built participatory defense to keep people out of prison. One of our main partners out there is Mothers in Charge, an incredible organization of mainly parents who have lost children to violence, as well as formerly incarcerated community members who find support and love as they restart their lives. It is a place of spirit, love, and perseverance.

Photo 1: This is Ms. Dorothy - the founder and inspiring head Mother in Charge! She sits with the picture of her son Khaaliq, who was killed in 2001. After losing her son, she went on to create Mothers in Charge in 2003 for other families to have support through the tragedy and trauma.

Photo 2: This is Steve, one of their core participatory defense organizers, about to start their meeting. This amazing brother did over 40 years in prison, and is now leading participatory defense meetings in Philly to prevent others to going to the system. He has an incredibly humble and generous spirit.
Photo 3: This is their weekly participatory defense meetings. As you can see, the room is filled with families and individuals who are supporting each other in the name of freedom.
Photo 4: This is our sister Taz, from the National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, who joined us from the New York participatory defense hub. She is working with a young woman on her case -- showing her what to expect from an attorney, and how to prepare the best defense possible.
Salute to our Philly Family!!! #protectyourpeople #mothersincharge #participatorydefense #calitophilly
