Recently, several anti-racism activists in the Southeast were targeted by local police and the FBI for standing up to white supremacy. Their homes were raided, access to their FB accounts, Google, and all connected accounts were given to law enforcement and FBI, and all of their electronics were taken, including items belonging to the activists' children.

During the searches, activists were isolated and interrogated without representation for unknown lengths of time. They were threatened, told nobody was coming for them, nobody would help them, shown pictures of their family members and told "they're next." They were shown pictures of their vehicles and homes, which were under surveillance, and law enforcement repeatedly told them blatant lies to try to get them to admit to crimes they did not commit or have any knowledge of.

One activist was handcuffed naked and thrown on the couch for the duration of their search, during which she was berated by the police, threatened, had her family threatened, and was told by an FBI agent that the agent was friends with Nazis. 

Another activist was arrested and was able to make bail, but returned home after midnight to find that white supremacists knew where she and her family lived, and had followed her home. They maneuvered their truck to block her ride in the driveway for several minutes, then sped off into the dark.

Law enforcement and Nazis are working together to target these queer activists and single mothers whose lives are traumatized & severely disrupted by an arrest; especially when they can't afford bail or representation, can't check on their children, lose wages every moment they are incarcerated, and may lose their jobs. These folx show up to stand against white supremacy when most people are afraid to, risking everything. Now they need our help!

Please donate as much as you’re able. Let's get & keep these folx out of jail, help cover their attorney fees, and allow them to continue fighting white supremacy.

If not now, when?
If not us, who?

Bail needed: $750
Attorney fees: $4,250
