Fund to Support Folks Arrested at Grand Rapids Protests

June 2, 2020

According to a press release from the City of Grand Rapids, 7 people were arrested on the night of May 30 / early morning of May 31 during protests against police in downtown Grand Rapids. Additionally, several people were arrested on the subsequent two nights for violating a curfew instituted in response to the protests.
The Grand Rapids Police Department (GRPD) is pledging to make future arrests, threatening “hundreds” of arrests
as they comb over surveillance camera footage, social media posts, and evidence submitted through their online snitch portal.

In response, a group of folks in Grand Rapids are working with the Michigan Solidarity Bail Fund to raise money to support those arrested as a result of the recent actions in Grand Rapids.

Further updates will be forthcoming. Check out the website and/or follow on Instgram. If you know of anyone arrested, please get in touch with the Michigan Solidarity Bail Fund at michigansolidaritybaildfund [at] gmail [dot] com.

Also, please remember to be careful with what you post online — even innocent seeming posts can incriminate others. This includes photos/video,  speculation, rumors, and accusations about what individuals did, where they live, and/or what their motivations may be. Please don’t do the work of the state.
