Raise Money to Support Antifascist Prisoners and their Families
Putting on a fundraising event for July 25th and donating the proceeds to support antifascist prisoners and their families is a very good way to show appreciation & solidarity. Every year for #j25antifa, Antifa International does an online sale of “Support Antifa Prisoners” t-shirts (designed by a former antifa prisoner!), and donates the proceeds to the antifascists currently locked up (you’ll find a list of them and information about how to contact their support groups here!). We also run a standing fund that provides support to antifascist prisoners and their families throughout the year, which you can make a contribution to here.
Take a Solidarity Photo

Write to Antifascist Prisoners
Nothing is better when you’re locked up than receiving mail! You can send letters or postcards to the antifascist prisoners on our list or participate in Rose City Antifa’s Postcards to Prisoners campaign or hold a letter-writing party with your friends! Here’s some tips for writing to prisoners.

Dedicate an Action to these Comrades
The only limit to what you can pull off on July 25th is your imagination!
Remember that together, we can create a flow of solidarity that strengthens our ties to one another and creates a culture of resistance that can withstand the inevitable tides of repression. These comrades are in there for us, so we are out here for them!
