AADM Temporarily Suspends Freedom Fund Bail Program

Mokah Johnson

The Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement has temporarily suspended its Freedom Fund operations. The fund is used to bail qualifying inmates out of jail and keep them out.

Mokah-Jasmine Johnson is Co-founder and President of the AADM.

Johnson says the fund provides more than the money to get out of jail, and the cases must meet certain criteria to be considered.

Johnson says the organization is currently working to replenish the fund in order to assist families in getting inmates out of jail by Christmas. For more information, visit www.aadmovement.org.
