3. Civil Rights Lawsuit Still Needs Your Help

Advocates for Justice is working tirelessly to hold accountable those who have caused irreparable harm to thousands of children by damaging their educational system. The lawyers who are defending our cause have put in thousands of hours at no charge to the plaintiffs. The school board has dug deep into the district’s budget to defend its members, taking millions of dollars away from education to pay high priced law firms to try to get the case dismissed on technicalities. Advocates for Justice is being outspent ten to one, and yet still has kept the case alive so it can one day be heard by a jury. 

Donations are desperately needed to counter the massive legal attack. We know we will win, and our opponents do too, which is why they are trying so hard to keep this case from ever going to trial. Your support at this time is crucial. Please go to and make a tax deductible donation. Thank You!
