Five Resources For Those Seeking To Help Anti-Police Brutality Protesters

Here are 5 different resources including bail funds, legal aid, and other organizations working to help activists seeking justice for George Floyd and other victims of police violence.

Protests have exploded around our nation in the wake of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more unarmed Black people by the hands of regular citizens and our law enforcement. 

Millions of people across our nation have taken the streets to protest the civil rights that are being taken away by those who have sworn in to protect their community. Among those, thousands of people have been arrested for protesting their concerns. 

If you’re looking to assist those without having to be out on the streets during these times, here are a few options for you.

George Floyd Memorial Fund
This fund is established to cover funeral and burial expenses, mental and grief counseling, lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and to assist the Floyd family in the days to come as they continue to seek justice for George.  A portion of these funds will also go to the Estate of George Floyd for the benefit and care of his children and their educational fund.

National Bail Fund Network
The National Bail Fund Network is made up of over sixty community bail and bond funds across the country. They regularly update their listing of community bail funds that are freeing people by paying bail/bond of the protesters and immigrants.  

Minnesota Freedom Fund
A community-based fund set up to pay criminal bail and immigration bonds for individuals who have been arrested while protesting police brutality. This has become one of the most prominent bail funds, providing relief to protesters in Minneapolis seeking justice for George Floyd.

Campaign Zero
An organization that utilizes research-based policy solutions to end police brutality in the U.S.

Unicorn Riot
Nonprofit media collective dedicated to exposing the root causes of dynamic social, economic, and environmental issues.

Together we can all make a difference. Stop the violence and stop the injustice.
