Donate to Critical Resistance

Every gift helps us fight jail expansion, policing and imprisonment, and build for abolition!

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

Dear friends,

We are deeply appreciative of all that you have given us in building an abolitionist future—through your solidarity, joint action, generous donations, and boosting Critical Resistance (CR) and the movement! 2019 was an inspiring year: we made 225 presentations, 87 media hits, launched the Abolitionist Training School, won two huge campaign victories, and brought on six new staffers! None of this is possible without your support; together we are building people power! We invite you to celebrate our victories in the struggle and support CR this season—into the future.

Critical Resistance (CR) is majority grassroots funded – so our work is only possible because of your support! Will you help us reach our $50,000 year-end goal and make a gift to CR this month? ($20,000 reflects our online goal, see all giving options below.)

Thank you for helping to grow Critical Resistance and the abolitionist movement.

Onward, toward liberation,

Jess Heaney and Shirley Leslie, Critical Resistance Development team

and the CR National Fundraising Committee
