We are raising emergency funds in support of young black activist Eric Sheppard.
He is warned that he should not turn himself in, but that does not mean he won’t be caught by the pigs! In case that happens, we want to be ready. We want to set up emergency funding that consists of the following:
CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW!
$15,000 BAIL: We found that the estimate of Eric’s bail could be set to anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000. We will raise +$5,000 the maximum to ensure he can be bailed out.
$2000 SHELTER: This will go to Eric if he requests to us that he needs shelter, or so that he will be provided shelter when needed.
$1650 TRANSPORTATION: This will go to Eric if he requests to us that he’s in need of transportation so that it can be provided when needed.
$550 FOOD: This will go to Eric if he requests to us that he needs food, or so that he will be provided food when needed.
$800 ACTIVISM (if needed): In case for any reason, he is set without bail or killed, the funds will go towards organizing for Eric. If it is not needed, it will go to bail.
