  • On May 25, George Floyd was killed by police officers like Derek Chauvin.
  • Thousands of demonstrators across the country protested for nine days and charged Chauvin and the other officials involved.
  • National protests have led to arrests and violent interactions with law enforcement agencies. Below you will find free legal resources for those arrested.

    In the days since George Floyd's death in Minneapolis, thousands across the country have taken to the streets to protest police brutality in the name of justice for Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

    But both peaceful demonstrators and those who resorted to looting and property destruction have faced firm – and sometimes violent – opposition from law enforcement officials. Major cities like Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and Washington D.C. have curfews in place, and CNN estimates that more than 9,000 citizens have been arrested in the United States in the nine days since the protests began.

    To ensure fair legal treatment for those arrested, many lawyers across the country have offered protesters free of charge to detained protesters. If you are looking for help for yourself or a loved one, we have put together a selection of lawyers and law firms that have volunteered for free services. Below you will also find a deposit that asks for donations if you are able to do so. And we've listed additional ways here to demand justice for George Floyd.
