Our goal is to reach $10,000 in one-off donations by October this year, to keep us going.
We also need to raise $2,000 per month in regular donations to fund a co-ordinator position as we grow and expand, so please consider making a contribution regularly.
Since we formed in 2011, MALS has witnessed brave activists facing up to injustice, watched the emergence of inspiring activist groups, and seen powerful movements grow amidst increasingly brutal policing. We have been there for 8 years. Now we need your help.
We stand up for your civil and political rights. Help us protect your space to protest by making a monthly donation.
