Dear Community Members,
We come to you with an urgent call to action to support an unsung hero in our community who has recently faced unexpected adversity. This individual, a single parent actively working to promote equity within our community, has lost their job due to privately posting support for Palestinians. We understand that life can throw unexpected curveballs, and sometimes even the most dedicated and passionate individuals find themselves in need of a helping hand.
Due to the sensitive nature of their public-facing career and the potential impact this job loss could have on their future prospects, our friend has chosen to remain anonymous throughout this campaign. It is our collective responsibility to respect their privacy while offering the support that they deserve.
Who they are: This incredible individual has tirelessly dedicated themselves to advocating for equity, justice, and inclusivity within our city. As a single parent, they have faced the unique challenges of balancing work, parenthood, and community service, all while striving to make our community a better place for everyone. At the precipice of being fully financially independent and stable after securing the job of their dreams, the rug was pulled from underneath them without any warning at all. Shockingly, their outspokenness and commitment to equity and transparency cost them their job.
Throughout more than a decade of navigating demanding positions within the nonprofit and human service sector, our friend has consistently maintained job security without facing any threat to their livelihood. Having earned a graduate degree while balancing full time work and single parenting multiple children, there was never a question of what this person was able to accomplish or achieve.
Their commitment to creating positive change has impacted countless lives, and now it's our turn to step up and show them that their community stands with them during this challenging time.
The challenge they face: Losing a job unexpectedly is a daunting experience, and for our friend, it brings about not only financial strain but also the fear of jeopardizing their ability to continue advocating for the causes they hold dear. We want to ensure that they can navigate this difficult period with the peace of mind needed to emerge stronger and more resilient.
How you can help: We have set up this GoFundMe campaign to provide immediate financial assistance and emotional support to our silent champion. Your generous donations will go towards covering essential living expenses during this transitional period.
Even if you cannot contribute financially, your words of encouragement and solidarity mean the world. Share this campaign on social media, spread the word within your networks, and let's come together as a community to lift up someone who has done so much for us.
