From Outrage to Action: Fighting Together, Winning Together!
Proceeds will be used to launch CJI's new SOS Rapid Response Fund!
The SOS Fund, Strategic Opportunities to Support, will enable CJI to support immediate, on-the-ground action in response to emerging crises and movement opportunities around the country.
Since our inception, CJI has supported the communities targeted by the current administration—black and brown people, women and trans folks, the formerly incarcerated, families threatened with raids and deportation, and those plagued by police harassment and criminalization—in their fight against oppression.
That fight is more critical now than ever! Come help us celebrate recent victories in our movement to end mass criminalization and incarceration and prepare for the coming battles in our war of resistance to racism, sexism, transphobia, xenophobia, and other violent oppressions!
We're all in this together! For all of us to be free, we need to end the criminal justice system as we know it. Help us reach our goal of raising $30,000 to launch the SOS Fund in October!
Suggested donations for the event are $25-$200 and will go directly to the SOS Rapid Response Fund. No one will be turned away for lack of funds! Bring a friend and make a commitment to support us through the #45 administration! Support the movement and reserve your ticket now!
If you can't make it, you can still contribute to CJI and the SOS Fund!
