The Times Up Legal Defense Fund, dedicated to helping victims of sexual harassment and assault, on Tuesday announced its first grants to 18 groups supporting low-wage and domestic workers. The recipients included groups working on education and outreach, as well as those offering resources to people in need. Fatima Goss Graves, CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, a nonprofit managing the fund, said about 3,500 people have shared their stories and asked for help since the fund launched in January. “It’s a big reminder that harassment happens everywhere,” Graves said. “We are seeing women working in some of the lowest-paid fields contact us, and some of the highest-paid fields.”
