Thanks to the generous support of a number of donors, we were able to bring a lawsuit against members of the board of trustees to fruition. But raising additional funds will increase our chances of success.
Additional funds will be needed to help defray the costs of the legal proceedings, including legal costs, filing fees, expert witnesses and public relations assistance. Further legal proceedings may involve hearings, depositions, discovery and a myriad of other legal costs.
Additionally, effective community organizing requires infrastructure and supplies to survive. While many of our supporters will learn about our efforts via the internet, there are many people from the older generation who will depend on information via traditional snail mail. We must have the funds to create, print and mail informational packets. We must make sure that we have the funds to keep this website accessible and we must ensure that it is always updated with the latest information regarding the federal lawsuit.
If our goal of a successful lawsuit against the Shaw University Board of Trustees is achieved, any remaining funds will be donated back to the students of Shaw University. If the goal is not achieved, any remaining funds will be donated to some other worthy educational cause.
ALL FUNDS DONATED THROUGH THIS SITE WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE YOUNG LAW FIRM
