2017 saw a the beginning of the end for those who would seek to hide behind power while decimating the lives of those around them. Almost 200 men in positions of power have had that very power torn away from them. Hopefully this will make it’s way all the way to the top (*see Donald Trump).
Time’s Up mission statement reads:
“The clock has run out on sexual assault, harassment and inequality in the workplace. It’s time to do something about it.”

The statement continues:
“The sexual discrimination, harassment, and assault that has been reported and come to light over the last two months have been equal parts terrifying and illuminating. We stand with all those who have endured sexual harassment: those who have come forward and those who have decided to remain quiet. It’s time for change, and we must act now.
TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund will provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers. The Fund will ultimately be housed at and administrated by the National Women’s Law Center, an established, national women’s rights legal organization. A network of lawyers and public relations professionals across the country will work with the Center’s Legal Network for Gender Equity to provide assistance to those ready to stand up. Access to prompt and comprehensive legal and communications help will mean empowerment for these individuals and long term growth for our culture and communities as a whole.
Tax-deductible donations made to our GoFundMe campaign, working in partnership with The Direct Impact Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will help launch the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund.
Thank you for joining this movement – for your contribution, for sharing this campaign with others, and for standing together with us, so that all people can live free from sexual harassment and violence.
The voices of those affected in every industry have been silenced for too long. From everyday people in the service industry, to farmers and businesspeople, to the entertainment and media industry and beyond, stand with us and let your voice be heard.
At time of press, the fund is over $13 million dollars, with a goal of $15 million. Sign up and donate now.
