When activists face repression, we stand with them.

We provide support for people who are arrested at protests, or otherwise prosecuted for their movement involvement.

Protest is vital to a free society, but with resistance comes repression.

From the Civil Rights Era to today, Atlanta has strong traditions of dissent. Protest movements play a critical role in the struggle for social justice. But when people stand up for what’s right, they often face the risk of arrest and imprisonment.

“We were doing a protest against police violence. When I got arrested, I wasn’t sure anyone even knew I was in jail. But the Solidarity Fund got me out. I’m happy because I get to be reunited with my family.” – Legend, a prison justice activist

The Antidote to Repression is Solidarity

Getting arrested can be very demoralizing. It can make targets feel isolated, overwhelmed, even abandoned.

By supporting arrestees, we show that nobody in our movements will be left behind. Solidarity builds trust and makes us all feel stronger.

What We Do

Resources we provide for protesters experiencing repression.

Jail Support

Experienced volunteers track arrestees through the criminal justice system, helping to ensure that their rights are respected.


Bail

As funds allow, the Solidarity Fund provides cash to get arrestees released from jail as soon as possible.

 

Access to Representation

We work with arrestees to help them get access to a lawyer, and assist them in navigating the legal system.

 

What We Need From You

Want to support our efforts? Here are a few ways.

Donate Money

Bail costs a lot of money. We depend on contributions from ordinary people. Please give what you can!

Spread the Word

Share this on social media, tell your friends, co-workers, congregation, and fellow activists.

Organize a Fundraiser

Mobilize your community! Organize a benefit show or a donor drive.  Contribute a percentage of sales towards the Solidarity Fund.

Contribute Legal Services

If you are a lawyer or other legal professional, and are interested in offering pro-bono help to activists, we want to hear from you!
