In support of those people arrested during protests this week, on the one-year anniversary of the police murder of Michael Brown, please consider donating to the legal support fund.
Since August 9, over 800 people have been arrested in Ferguson while protesting Mike Brown’s death and the epidemic of police violence facing Black and Brown communities in the United States.The Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) legal support team aims to provide accessible, democratic and accountable legal support to a wide range of people participating in the struggle for social change.
We provide Know Your Rights trainings, staff out a legal support hotline, track arrestees so they don’t get lost in the system, fundraise for legal support costs, bond people out of jail, connect defendants with pro bono attorneys, coordinate with attorneys, organize volunteers & support people who go to trial.
If you would like us to help cut down on our processing fees, please consider sending a check to MORE, 438 N. Skinker, St. Louis MO 63130.
Money donated to the MORE legal support fund goes towards bail, court fees, and ensuring that protestors have access to free legal representation. Any money that is returned to the fund will go towards supporting civil disobedience in St. Louis.
