The J20 Resisters will attend their final pre-trial hearing for the criminal charges they face on Tuesday, December 12th. The J20 Resisters face criminal charges after taking action on the morning of the Presidential Inauguration. The J20 Resisters were each charged with 3 misdemeanors, which may result in a total of $33,000 in fines, or 2 years of jail time for each, if convicted.

Nearly a year later, SF District Attorney George Gascón continues to press charges, despite hundreds of calls and emails from supporters who support these activists’ action as principled opposition to Trump’s rule. Despite his reputation as a progressive, Gascon uses his position to shield dangerous cops from prosecution while criminalizing protest.

We remain unwavering in our commitment to justice and steadfast in resistance to this administration and the frightening escalation of political repression. We believe the City should be dedicating its resources to protecting those most vulnerable under the new government, not squandering resources on criminalizing dissent. Join us on Tuesday morning to tell DA Gascon to DROP THE CHARGES AGAINST THE J20 RESISTERS!

The J20 Resisters are facing charges stemming from a protest in the Bay Area on Inauguration Day 2017. On that morning, they took action in opposition to the atrocity of the openly violent, white supremacist Trump administration taking power, and in solidarity with families and communities facing greater danger and oppression under this regime.

Nearly a year later, SF District Attorney George Gascón has chosen not to drop their charges, despite hundreds of calls and emails from supporters who see our actions as principled opposition to Trump’s rule. We remain unwavering in our commitment to justice and steadfast in resistance to this administration and the frightening escalation of political repression. We believe the City should be dedicating its resources to protecting those most vulnerable under the new government, not squandering resources on criminalizing dissent.

We are asking you to sign on to this letter to your elected official, DA Gascón, adding your name, organization, and/or business to the growing list of those who refuse to allow this repressive prosecution to continue.
