14. In Boston, a novel fund-raising model to combat Saturdays free speech rally


A local nonprofit has deployed a fund-raising tactic used to counter neo-Nazi groups in Germany ahead of Saturday’s controversial “Boston Free Speech” rally on the Common.

Union Capital Boston, a Jamaica Plain-based charity that fosters community engagement and advocates for equality, has launched an initiative to raise money for groups like Black Lives Matter and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

People can pledge a certain amount of money per rally attendee.

The more people who attend the free speech rally, the more money will be raised for groups that stand in opposition to the rally.
