We reached our goal for Ms Jones' family and her funeral services. Thank you to each and everyone of you who contributed to the fundraising efforts in this difficult time. The family sends their gratitude and appreciation to all of you.



Early Saturday morning, December 26th, Chicago police officers responded to a call of a domestic disturbance. Bettie Jones was answering the door and letting the police officers into the building when they opened fire and killed her.

Ms. Jones, just 56 years old, was a mother of five and a member of Action Now. We are working with the family to seek justice for her death and help with funeral expenses.

More info:
Ms. Bettie Jones was a member of Action Now, a grassroots organization in Chicago that works on racial, social, and economic justice. The funds raised on this page will help Ms. Jones' family pay for funeral services.

First, we want to thank each and everyone of you for your donations, for sharing the fundraising page, and for your words of support. We are withdrawing the money from the campaign to give to Bettie's family.

The prayers, thoughts, and donations have truly helped in this difficult time!

Incredible! We surpassed our goal of $10,000 to help Bettie Jones' family with the much needed funeral expenses.

Our own Ms. Jones was not the only innocent person murdered by Chicago police that night. Quintonio Legrier, a 19-year old college student, needed help to deal with his mental illness that not. This promising young man's life was cut short by a reckless police department.

We have increased the goal to help his family as well.

Thank you to everyone of you for donating so far!!

Mr. Jackson. It cost me $7,500 for my moms funeral back in 2006.. 9years ago! No fancy bells and whistles included. That did NOT cover flowers,obituaries, repass costs, etc. Although the latter 3 are not an absolute must, who'd want a funeral without these items? $10k is a fair, VERY fair round figure. And besides, who the heck cares if somethings leftover? These people have been devastated and here you are going evil accountant on them..Just don't donate anything and shut up!!

Good thoughts to the family at this time. Anonymous Harry, you are like all the characters in Oz, in need of a brain, heart and courage. Prayers to the family, send them prayers but also, let's demand change, politically and otherwise.

Harry has never heard of final expenses. Car payments, utilities, charge cards, phone bills. Final bills and rent on the apartment Ms jones shares with her 19 year old daughter. Plus the daughter is college age, most parents still support 19 year olds. Many grandparents care for grandchildren so the parents can afford to work. All that cost thousands. Eventually the family will get money from the city, but lawsuits can take years.

It's not letting me donate. I get a popup that says: "Donations are Complete! The organizer has stopped donations." Is that intentional?

I am so sorry for the pain your family is going through. Such an injustice and travesty. I'm praying for your family. And hoping things change in this corrupt and racist CPD. Very disheartening to read about another innocent person being murdered by the CPD.

Mr Harry Jackson and everyone else talking negative ... How much do you all think a funeral cost? Do your research before you start to talk about how much is this and how much is that. Stop being so damn insensitive. If you think it's not a fair cost.... DON'T DONATE! Just scroll pass and HUSH UP!

This is a Horrible situation. This family definitely should receive support. I think, however, that the city should Automatically cover all expenses involved here. Medical as well as funeral costs. I will be so ashamed of thr city of Chicago if they do not cover these costs when their city workers killed her.
