Fundraiser: Justice for Jacob Blake

Video that went viral Aug. 23 showed police shooting Jacob Blake, a black man living in Kenosha, Wis., seven times in the back. Antiracism protests erupted in Kenosha, Wis., and across other U.S. cities amid fury over this incident, and over the subsequent incident of a 17-year-old white man who shot and killed protestors, yet was allowed to walk away unharmed and without being immediately arrested.

Donate to the fundraiser for Jacob Blake, and check out our ongoing Justice + Equity Fundraiser to benefit The Bail Project, as protesters continue to be arrested across the U.S. in what has been a heavy-handed response from law enforcement.
