"You will never make as much money as you will in a crisis."

These words were a reflection by Ezra Berkley Nepon, fundraiser extraordinaire who led a drive in the summer of 2000 to quickly raise bail and legal defense funds for more than four hundred activists who were arrested, overcharged, and many of whom in that moment were being abused in jail.

Nepon and others raised $200,000 in total, most of which happened during the “crisis” of people being abused in jail and held on bails as high as $1 million, unprecedented at the time for political protest arrests.
