The mission of KCCBF
"Our mission is to give those who cannot afford bail a fighting chance at getting a positive outcome in their case rather than be persuaded to plead out through the use of a revolving fund. We want those detained pretrial to be given a chance to keep their jobs, their spot in school, their housing, and provide care for their children, while maintaining their presumed innocence, rather than sitting in local or county jail costing the taxpayers and themselves money. By doing so, we will be advocating for bail reform and ending mass incarceration by example.
We believe that the right to freedom should not be based on one's ability to afford bail."
"Across the world, people are rising up against police brutality and state oppression. We need you to join the community in protecting our right to protest by donating to our legal support fund today. Activists across the country have faced outlandish charges while fighting for Black liberation. Protesters in Kansas City have been targeted and brutalized while being arrested. Among those arrested were community activists, veterans, and members of the press. This fund is used to release those who are arrested in Kansas City while standing up and telling the police “Black Lives Matter!” “Ya Me Canse” and other cries of resistance. This financial security empowers every person to stand up and fight back regardless of their economic security. One Struggle KC believes that all people, regardless of their charges, should have a right to fair legal representation. We challenge you to stand for that by donating today."
