i know your links say this, but please don’t donate to change[dot]org petitions. they are not an organization or charity.

You’re right! I added the links for petition signing rather than donations. I will look for credible organization and charity links for those who want to donate to the cause.

Thank you for this!

So far we have supported the bail project. Does anyone know if there have been any medical funds set up for protestors? Also legal funds outside of bail? I know there will likely be a lot of defense lawyers volunteering to take cases but I hope they will outside civil suits as well. More people have been killed and had life-altering injuries.

This is the only reason I wish I were rich. I hate we even have to think about any of this right now. We should be focused on justice, not worrying about protestors being bankrupt.

If anyone lives in Washington, here’s a document my friend made, it has other links in it as well.

I don’t know much about the legal funds for outside bail but I will research more and look into it. I don’t know if this suits what your looking for but I found this great Rolling Stone article which shows non-bail funds, neighborhood funds, etc. https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/george-floyd-protests-bail-funds-police-brutality-black-lives-matter-1008259/
I hope this helps!

You rock! And you don’t need to do that work for me. I’ll do some research and post if I find anything.

I hope you are well and caring for yourself. I hope everyone is. I know it’s difficult to think of self-care but that is the best thing you can do so you don’t burn out. :heartbeat:
