Black Lives Matter Legal Representation Fund

About

Americans are rising in anger and hope to protest systemic violence and injustice fueled by outrage over the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. Bright Funds has established the Black Lives Matter Legal Representation Fund, composed of pre-vetted nonprofits committed to providing legal representation to those who actively seek to eliminate racism through activism. Through a single tax deductible donation to the Fund you will support a group of nonprofits that are part of the movement to fight for freedom, liberation and justice for all Black lives.

Advancement Project

Advancement Project reinforces and grows the capacity of today's grassroots activists and the local organizers fighting to build power for communities of color. Locally, Advancement Project National Office provides direct, hands-on support for organized communities in their struggles for racial and social justice, providing legal, communications and campaign organizing resources for on-the-ground efforts, while assisting in building their own capacity and power in their communities.

Legal Rights Center Incorporated

The Legal Rights Center’s staff of attorneys and Community Advocates provide quality legal representation for both juveniles and adults without charge. Their controlled caseloads allow our attorneys to dedicate their efforts to each client. They firmly believe that people who are poor and have been charged with a crime must receive the same representation that a person of wealth would receive. Their roots are in defending cases in which activists of color become targeted by police, and they will continue to be of service to their communities for those who cannot afford private attorneys.

National Lawyers Guild Foundation Inc

The NLG is dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. The NLG Mass defense program is offering pro bono legal representation to protesters. Their aim is to bring together all those who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, LGBTQ people, farmers, people with disabilities and people of color, upon whom the welfare of the entire nation depends; who seek actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect their civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.
