Meek Mill paid the bail of 20 incarcerated women in Philadelphia last week so they could spend the holidays with their families.
An Instagram post from the rapper’s REFORM Alliance nonprofit shared that the women were incarcerated at Riverside Correctional Facility and could not afford bail. Meek not only took care of the bail, but each woman was also given a gift card to purchase groceries or gifts for the holidays.
“For families impacted by the criminal justice system, the holidays can be an extremely challenging time,” the rapper said in a statement on Instagram. “No one should have to spend the holidays in jail simply because they can’t afford bail, and no child should be without their parents during this time if we can do something about it. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help these women be with their families and loved ones during this special time of year.”
