#Tally19 Community Support Fund

On Saturday, September 5th, 2020 FIVE different law enforcment agencies, including the Tallahassee Police Department and Leon County Sheriff's Office orchestrated a militarized attack on peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters protesting the grand jury decision to NOT indict police officers involved in the murder of #TonyMcDade, #MychaelJohnson and Wilburn Woodard who were gunned down by Tallahassee police in March and May of this year. 


After pulling a black woman organizer from her car, 300 police attacked around 75-100 protesters arresting 14 on the spot THEN on Wednesday, September 9th the Tallahassee Police Department and the Leon County Sheriff's Department began executing arrests on more protesters (some of who only had misdemeanor charges against them).  THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED in Tallahassee and sets a dangerous precedent for the state of Florida and the country.  On Thursday, September 10th two more people were arrested bringing the total to 18 and we have knowledge of one more warrant right now which brings the total to 19 people targeted by police.  


The bail for these individuals is only the tip of the iceberg on the expenses and long range consequences. Two people have multiple felony charges which could cost them individually up to $10,000 in fines and 10 years in prison.  We have people with multiple charges all placed against them which could cost them up to $1000 for each misdemeanor and 1 year in jail for each misdemeanor charge.


Then there is COVID testing because the Leon County jail is riddled with COVID, and now three police officers who were a part of the militarized attack have tested positive for COVID. Many of the police were NOT wearing masks.  We have people with injuries needing medical support, people have missed work, people are beginning to have their jobs threatened, and everyone should have access to mental health support.  AT THE MINIMUM.


THAT'S WHAT this COMMUNITY SUPPORT FUND is for.


All donations will be used to provide community support for the #Tally19, and their families, if they are placed in prison.  Funds will be used to provide medical, mental health,  legal defense and community support for those arrested.  Left over funds will be used to support future initiatives including know your rights trainings, safety and medic trainings, protective gear, and other educational events in the Tallahassee areas.


PLEASE DONATE TODAY and SHARE SHARE SHARE - the arrests keep coming.  Tallahassee and the state of Florida NEED you. This is Florida's Capital City. What happens here impacts all of FLORIDA.  What happens in Florida impacts ALL the nation.
