New Mexico Coalition Of Sexual Assault Programs Awarded $40K Grant To Help Low-Wage Workers Who Face Sexual Harassment

The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, which is housed and administered by the National Women’s Law Center Fund, made this week’s grant awards to build on the fund’s commitment to supporting survivors of sexual harassment and retaliation across all industries. The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund received more than 120 applications for these funds. “We are thrilled to support organizations that are helping the most vulnerable workers fight back against sexual harassment,” said Fatima Goss Graves, co-founder of the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund and President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center. “Sexual misconduct in the workplace has been allowed to thrive unchecked for too long—and low-wage workers and women of color have faced the brunt of this abuse and not known where to turn. The awardees’ inventive strategies to educate workers about their rights are key to combatting this scourge.”
