Hey everyone! Thank you so much for the donations already. I just wanted to let you know that I'm looking for organizations to partner with to house and distribute this fund. There are a few that i'm looking at specifically, and I'll be sure to update once things are finalized.
I'll be looking for lawyers who are willing to perhaps partner to offer a reduced rate for consultations for women facing cease and desist letters and potential lawsuits as a result of speaking out about their abuse. If you're a lawyer who would be interested in doing this, or someone you know is, please get in touch!
Finally, I'm hoping to start lobbying PEN Canada and specific politicians to start focusing their attention on changing libel laws so they don't silence the less powerful while, essentially, keeping abusers in control of both their speech and the press surrounding their case. Let's try and do what we can on multiple fronts to show sexual assault and abuse survivors they're not alone.
