Who we are
The IFF is run by a leadership team of three volunteers: Jessica Burnett, Sofia Bottinelli, and Laurel Klafehn, who re-ignited the fund in 2022. We are proud to be fiscally sponsored by The HadaÑou Collective while we await a determination on our 501(c)(3) application with the IRS.
The current leadership team re-started operations of the bond fund after Francey Liefert and Harper Strickland decided to step away in 2021. Under their leadership, and with the support of the Namaqua Unitarian Universalist Congregation, the IFF paid the bonds of 92 people, amounting to a total of $456,500 over two years. We are grateful to all who contributed to the fund in its previous life, and look forward to continuing this work alongside you all.

We rely on donations to pay for the release of our neighbors. We are also in the process of translating this website and our bond fund application into other languages to expand access for those who do not speak, read or write English or Spanish.
