UPDATED 6/1: This campaign is working directly with organizers from Black Lives Matter Charleston to get these funds distributed to where they are needed most. As soon as they are available, these funds will be withdrawn and sent to organizers who are bailing out protestors and purchasing supplies for protests, such as masks, water, and safe transportation arrangements. These funds may also be withdrawn and distributed directly to the jail for bail, or to a protestor's family member who are handling the bailing process for their loved one. There are currently several protestors still in custody at this time with more demonstrations planned for this afternoon.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, please contact protest organizers or send a message through this campaign so we can get things moving towards bringing them home safely. If you have already bailed out yourself or a loved one, please also get in touch, as there are other resources that are still available to you.
Again, this is a completely volunteer effort generated by concerned citizens looking to help their neighbors in this stressful time. The overwhelming support and response has been greatly appreciated.
UPDATED 5/31: After speaking with protest organizers this campaign will now include funds for supplies such as masks, water, and safe transportation for protestors.
This is a general community fund to help any Black Lives Matter protestors in the Charleston, SC area receive bail funds should they need it. We are in the early stages so please stayed tuned for more info. This is not officially affiliated with any organization or organizer, this is created by allies wanting to help create positive change.
This campaign is currently managed by Katie Thompson.
