State of NJ v Kevin Alfaro

On Friday, June 26, I attended a BLM solidarity ride out/protest. At the protest, we were met with anti-BLM counter-protestors from Nutley UNICO; separated by a wall comprised of officers from the Nutley Police Department.
Despite our protest being peaceful, we were physically threatened by the counter-protesters. The counter-protestors seemed to be very friendly with the officers of the Nutley PD, some of whom had their badge numbers covered.
As a citizen exercising my 1st amendment rights, I felt threatened that a public servant was befriending blatant racists. In an attempt to identify a specific police officer who was befriending someone harassing me, I uploaded a photo with the intent identifying an officer wearing a "blue lives matter" mask which has lead to my current legal situation. On 7/12 I received a court summons and am now facing fourth-degree crime charges which carry a possibility of time served. It is very unheard of to go into court against the police and win. I'm counting on a miracle happening and trying to walk away from this unharmed but to do so I need good representation. I am trying to raise these funds that I do not have so I can be well represented when my court date comes on August 12th 
[any extra money will go to BLM-based Orgs]
*will post in updates*  Thank You!
