"National Bail Fund Network (link)"
Mon Jun-01-20 09:48 PM by kfine

          

I didn't know which post to add this to so just giving it it's own:

https://www.communityjusticeexchange.org/nbfn-directory


A lot of people may be looking for ways to support other than being out in the streets. This organization keeps links to bail funds in almost every state.

And here's their link for orgs - again, in almost every state - seeking to help those jailed for participating in recent protest/BLM/anti-PB actions specifically:

https://bit.ly/protestbailfunds


Please feel free to post-jack with any other resources you may know of as well.

I live in Colorado, and there have been protests here but not on the same level of other cities. Wondering where my donation would be needed the most.

I've been on the www.blacklivesmatter.com website this morning a bit (which is where I've donated in the past), but want to make sure I donate directly to the right causes and not some unaffiliated 3rd parties stealing donations or something like that.

It looks like they're two separate pages so I just want to make sure I use the right one before I start tossing donations out there. Maybe both are fine, but I just want to be sure. Thanks.

But pretty sure every link to donate there is external and just forwards you to the specific organization/cause. I donated by going through one of those links without problems. I've also seen the link reposted throughout the internet by reputable sources.

I understand your scepticism though

.. when I'm done working but it sounds like a good aggregate of a lot of the organizations and funds that need donations, so I'll likely end up doing both. Thanks for the info.
