Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus was unjustly arrested and incarcerated pretrial. Today, in Cook County over 4,500 people - overwhelmingly Black and Brown people - are trapped in jail during a global pandemic, many just because they cannot afford to pay a money bail. Scripture tells us that whatever we do to our most vulnerable siblings, we do to Jesus. As we celebrate Palm Sunday safely from our homes, waving palms and crying out, “Hosanna!,” our joy is tempered because we know that Christ is incarcerated in the Cook County Jail.  

This Holy Week we must #DecarcerateChrist. Help us raise $5,000 to get “Christ” #OutbyEaster. Even $5 or $10 can be the difference between an accused person celebrating Easter at home or being imprisoned in a jail with confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the midst of a public health crisis. $5,000 represents the average amount of money required to be released. 

The mission of the Gospel is about liberating captives and setting people free. Let’s make this Easter the one where we break the bonds of injustice and #DecarcerateChrist. 

This fundraising campaign is being run by the Logan Square Ecumenical Alliance. All proceeds will be used by Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF) to free people awaiting trial from Cook County Jail or house arrest with electronic monitoring. The money will become part of CCBF's revolving bail fund, which will allow it to be combined with other donations and to pay bond for people over and over again. CCBF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and your donation is tax-deductible. To learn more about CCBF, visit www.chicagobond.org.
