Help Finance Legal Defense for Protesters Standing Against Police Violence and Racial Injustice
We urge all—who like ourselves can’t be on the streets but want to support Black Lives Matter protesters—to please join us in helping finance the legal defense of those courageous people exercising their constitutional right to peacefully protest against police violence and racial injustice. As John Lewis urged, we need to ”get in the way!” This is one way we can.
We as a nation are facing an historically critical threat to our civil liberties by militarized forces arbitrarily arresting peaceful protesters. 100% of the money we raise will go directly to the Mass Defense arm of the National Lawyers Guild, renowned for defending the rights of protesters and providing legal support for social justice movements for 50 years.
We are a group of people who met on a meditation retreat. When asked to give service to others during the current health and racial crises, we chose to raise funds for the legal defense of today’s protesters. We support peaceful protesters, and we hope you will join us.
