Time | The Kalief Browder Story is a 6-part documentary series produced by Jay Z and Harvey Weinstein that tells the story of a teenage boy from the Bronx who spent three years on Rikers Island without ever being convicted. An inability to pay bail tore apart Kalief's family and community, and eventually led him to commit suicide. http://www.spike.com/articles/s44ct3/time-the-kalief-browder-story-share-kalief-browders-story

Matt Cameron recently watched the series and was incredibly moved by it. He wanted to do something to help Bronx-area teenagers in situations like Kalief’s avoid similar fates. Last week, Cameron made a donation of $10,000 through Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation to the Bronx Freedom Fund which includes a revolving fund to pay bail for people accused of misdemeanors; their goal is to keep people in their jobs, with their families, and out of jail while they await trial.

    This sounds like a great cause. Thanks Matt. Those not affected by the criminal justice system don't see the injustices that occur. Or don't care.

    I saw an interview with that kid a few years ago. He was indeed a kid and they sent him to hell. Such a sad story.
    Thank you Matt and Vitalogy for the good things you do. We love hearing about it.
