Madison Uprising #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

This past week cities across the nation have united with protests in Minneapolis for #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd. Today as Madison joins in solidarity with people fighting for Black lives across the nation, the police have begun making a series of arrests.

Local activists from Freedom Inc , Urban Triage , PSL and FreeThe350BailFund are asking for support in raising funds to bail out protesters. We will also be raising funds to cover their legal expenses.

People are being arrested right now - Saturday, May 30th, 2020. We need funds immediately and in the current days as we expect protests to continue. 

Madison stands with Minneapolis and cities around the nation in demanding an end to police brutality against black bodies. We demand an end to police terrorism in black communities.

We stand with the demand of Minneapolis protesters to reinvest the $100 billion spent on policing nationwide in alternative emergency response programs.

Justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, and countless others.

Thank you for time and thank you for standing in solidarity.

My name is Jessica Williams and I'm a community organizer in Madison, WI. I am one of the organizers planning protests in Madison. Folks who are/will be detained are members of our Madison community and people that support the work I do along with Freedom Inc , Urban Triage , PSL and FreeThe350BailFund. Any donations we receive will be used to bail out folks who are sitting in jail and can't get out because they can't afford bail otherwise. Funds will be routed through Madison's local FreeThe350BailFund to post bail for those arrested and held by police. We anticipate that some arrestees may have extensive criminal charges and we are prepared to support them legally if necessary.
