Join the Revolution

Want to Support the Struggle Against Police Brutality? Here’s How.

There are many ways to offer solidarity, whether you are physically able to attend protests, or not.

On May 25, people across the country watched yet another horrific act of violence be committed against the Black community in the case of George Floyd, who was murdered by Minneapolis police.

It took four days for Derek Chauvin, the police officer responsible for murdering Floyd, to be charged, and the other three officers who participated in his death have yet to face consequences.

Around the country (and the world), protesters are taking to the streets to demand justice for the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless other Black victims of police brutality. Front liners are risking their lives to fight against the racism and injustice being carried out by the police and government. Stalled arrests and failures of justice have served to uphold violent iterations of white supremacist legal and social structures.

We support activists and allies organizing nationwide in these demonstrations, and the Black and Brown visionaries leading the way from the frontlines. This work is especially timely as we enter Pride Month, which only exists because of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 led by trans women of color and reminds us that looting and fires were integral tactics in historical struggles for justice.

As mass arrests climb into the thousands, protesters—and other organizations and initiatives providing support—need financial and material support. There are many ways to offer solidarity, whether you are physically able to attend protests, or not.

Bail funds, legal aid, and other resources are trending across social media, and these vital forms of participation will continue to be necessary as demonstrations reach further escalation. In addition to police forces, the National Guard is deployed throughout various U.S. cities, and Trump has threatened military deployment.

Here, we’ve compiled a living list of bail funds, legal aid services, and other organizations supporting this uprising and the Black Lives Matter movement. It can be an overwhelming time to figure out which action to take, our hope is that if you're unable to take physical action, you'll consider donating funds to one (or more!) of the 50+ resources below.
