Bailing out protesters in Harris, Dallas, and Bexar counties

Our cities and communities are in anguish and outrage over the brutal murder of George Floyd, who lost his life to our country’s deeply ingrained racism that manifested itself through the mounstrous actions of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin.

The world has shown up in support for those who are taking to the streets to demand the long-overdue end to police brutality that has taken the lives of too many of our Black, Brown, and Native people. Many of the protesters have been jailed, even as Chauvin’s accomplices remain free. Please help us bail out protesters in Harris, Dallas, and Bexar counties. All donations will be used to bail people out!
