SONG is a political home, kinship network, and family of LGBTQ people. Often the ties that bind us have been and are upheld by the many queer and trans women in our midst. For decades, queer and trans women have been creating our own support systems and chosen family based on survival work, organizing, balls and pageants. As Black queer and transgender women are targeted for simply existing, we have to honor our existence with support by going toe to toe with the very system that targets us. The concept of buying each other’s freedom is not new, but it is a tradition laid out as a pathway from our ancestors. We take up the collective responsibility to free Black mothers to fulfill the mandate set forth by our ancestors to abolish systems of oppression that keep our people in modern day bondage. This pathway created by our ancestors crosses identity as it calls us to reject anti-blackness, anti-immigrant, and homophobic and transphobic sentiments and actions simultaneously. As we collectively buy our freedom, we are also called to collectively build alternatives to policing to protect and defend our communities with the same momentum.

While we bailed out Black Mamas, a bill, SB4, was signed and passed in Texas reflecting the same anti-immigrant rhetoric spewed from this current administration. In the state of Texas, SB4 punishes law enforcement officials who refuse to turn over undocumented immigrants to immigration enforcement. More than often, law enforcement collaborates with ICE to police and detain undocumented folks. This piece of legislation explicitly solidifies law enforcement and ICE collaborations. In this moment, we are simultaneously reminded that our communities are called to act on each other’s behalf. We understand we are taking a shared risk to reap a shared reward, because we have a shared destiny.

We are just getting started. To end money bail and disable the framework of the prison and criminal legal system system it will take everyone playing a role to make it happen. While this endeavor is Black-led and centers Black mothers, we are all tied to this effort. We cannot forget our political and spiritual conviction ties us to act.
