“Sexual harassment and assault is rampant. So many people need help fighting back – especially women working at low-wage jobs who can’t afford attorneys to represent them. And so many of our workplaces need structural change. More women at the top. Equal pay. Safety, no matter where you work or live. And so much more. On January 1, 2018, we announced the creation of TIME’S UP and the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund. We had $13 million in commitments from 200 donors. Today, more than 21,000 people from around the world have contributed more than $22 million to connect women who experience workplace sexual harassment and retaliation with attorneys and, in some cases, media specialists.”  — Read our annual report here. 

The sexual harassment that has been reported in the last two years has been both horrific and illuminating. The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund supports the brave individuals who have come forward, at great risk to themselves, to seek the justice they deserve and to protect others from similar behavior. This Fund helps workers connect with lawyers and bring cases of workplace sexual harassment and related retaliation — regardless of industry, rank or role. Workplace sexual harassment and retaliation have often gone unchecked; now is the time to finally stop both.

For select cases involving sexual harassment and related retaliation at work, the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund can: 
Help pay legal fees and costs
Connect people to and help pay for media and storytelling assistance
