We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

We are fundraising for abolition!

Thank you for supporting radical, practical, and inspiring campaigns fighting jail expansion, policing and imprisonment! With your generous checks, cash, and online donations, so far we have raised a total of $23,317. (The amount reflected here is our online total.) Help us reach our total goal of $35,000!

Every gift helps us skill up CR members, community groups, and our movement. Every gift boosts and builds campaigns and projects that center abolition as an analysis and strategy. Every gift helps us build power for liberation in this crucial time.

It has been a year of heightened energy, movement building and struggle, and we want to thank you for standing alongside us in movement-building for liberation and self-determination. In this moment of increased attacks on communities, resources, and an atmosphere of racism, xenophobia, patriarchy, transphobia and fear mongering, Critical Resistance has drawn on and amplified the legacy of abolition of the prison industrial complex: a vision and strategy that explicitly challenges the forces of white supremacy, capitalism, and imperialism.

For almost 20 years, Critical Resistance has been a driving force behind reinvigorating and reconnecting the movement to fight the prison industrial complex. Since the 1998 founding conference, we have been advancing the strategies and visions for an abolitionist society through conferences, public events, workshops, videos, reports and literature, as well as campaigns, projects and coalitions. We hope you will join us on the eve of the 20th anniversary of our founding Critical Resistance conference by donating generously to keep the movement for abolition strong, vibrant, and growing.
