Join Moms United and friends for the 8th Annual Mother’s Day vigil outside Cook County Jail. We will honor (with/as) mamas inside and out. We will CELEBRATE survival, and uplift freedom fights.

We will safely distance and strongly encourage double-masking if you can.

We strongly encouraged mamas who’ve been inside, advocates/organizers leading freedom campaigns for loved ones to speak. Reach out to if that’s you! Please also reach out with any ideas or concerns!

If you represent an organization that would like to co-sponsor this event, GREAT! Reach out!

All ages are welcome!

There are no stairs, but the grass median can be harder to navigate when wet, so please reach out if you would like to confirm some support and solidarity around mobility.

Neurological diversity is expected and welcome. That should go without saying, but we need to keep saying it!

Moms United is committed to the abolition of prisons and police, and if that’s not where you’re at, but support survivors and want to learn more, know that you are very welcome!

We will share an online donation page for phone funds and toiletries for survivors inside. We will also share drop-off locations for local donations, as well as action steps to #FreeThem #FreeThemAll
