Update (April 29, 2021):
Thank you for your support so far! We have been able to provide many resources to the community through the initial fund. We are currently requesting additional funds in order to purchases goggles, masks, and PPE ahead of summer 2021. Any contributions, small or large, are greatly appreciated. We appreciate the support of the community and continue building upon the philosophy that strong communities make cops obsolete.
Peace love and protest,
Your Friends at Good Trouble Co-op
As many of you know, the past couple months in DC have seen militant far-right groups terrorizing organizers, civilians, and even religious sanctuary spaces. These hate groups have come armed, in military grade equipment, and have large sums of funding that are being used to inflict massive amounts of harm. Police have been largely ineffective in preventing, and frankly complicit, in their destruction namely on January 6, 2021. We are asking for community support as we fundraise for protective equipment and sanctuary for organizers and specifically front line activists.
The fash are armed, dangerous, and show no signs of stopping. In fact, we have seen their numbers grow tremendously over the past couple months that they have shown face in our city. With the funding, we hope to purchase vests for those that will be on the frontline. We are also hoping to provide temporary housing to activists leading up to inauguration.
Vests will be prioritized for femme BI-POC. You can request a vest here: bit.ly/gtcgearrequest
We thank you for your support.
