The Black Cross’ mission is to aid those who have been punished for opposing the U.S. government, and we direct our legal aid and defense funding to cases involving substantial civil rights issues.

If you are under indictment or represent an individual imprisoned in the course of resisting the federal government, and you believe your case may have a substantial impact beyond the interests of its litigants, please complete our form and submit a request for assistance.

Submissions are considered by our Review Committee on a regular basis, and if we believe we can offer you assistance or funding, we will make contact with you at the address you provide.
