Help the victims of the attack on a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
On Tuesday, August 25, a 17-year-old attacked three attendees at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Two died, and a third was injured.
We at OTYCD won’t give the assailant’s name because unlike certain folks on the far right, we don’t want to risk giving that twerp any fame or glory.
Instead, we are spotlighting the three victims by pointing you to their GoFundMe pages.
JoJo Rosenbaum died of a gunshot wound to the head. As of August 29, 2020, the GoFundMe for his funeral expenses had collected more than $21,000 of its $25,000 goal.

Anthony Huber was the first of the three whose identity was released to the public. He suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and succumbed.
As of August 29, 2020, his GoFundMe for funeral expenses had exceeded its goal several times over, tallying more than $147,000 against a request for $25,000.
Gaige Grosskreutz, who volunteered as a street medic in several BLM protests in Wisconsin over the summer, was severely wounded when he was shot in the arm. He lived, but faces multiple surgeries. A family friend told the Chicago Sun-Times that Grosskreutz had “lost his bicep” in the attack. He assisted in his own care on-scene by instructing others to apply a tourniquet to his injured limb.
As of August 29, 2020, Grosskreutz’s GoFundMe had raised slightly more than $40,000 against a goal of $50,000.
