Black Lives Matter Cincinnati - Bail & Legal Fund

On Friday, July 31, #BlackLivesMatter Cincinnati, family and supporters of Samuel Dubose held a candlelight vigil at the Hamilton County Courthouse in memory of his life and seeking justice for his murder at the hands of yet another incident of police brutality. After a unity circle and prayer, community members spoke of the need for peace as well as perseverance in the fight against racism and injustices in our community. Family members, local leaders, and clergy spoke to the crowd reinforcing the message of community engagement, love, and healing. The gathering convened with the quote by Assata Shakur "It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains."

Protesters marched toward Fountain Square in peaceful protest where police arrested at least 8 people. Please donate whatever you can to support the peaceful protestors arrested in Cincinnati tonight. ALL officers must be held accountable for Sam Dubose's murder, including the two officers who conspired to lie to cover up the murder. #DisarmThePolice
