Legal Defense Fund for Thomas Starks

On Christmas Eve, Thomas “Tas” Starks was arrested and detained by law enforcement for several days. While many families enjoyed the holidays together at home, Tas Starks, his wife Laura, and their children were abruptly thrown into a living nightmare.

Tas has been accused of vandalizing Senator Hoeven’s Fargo office. Anyone who truly knows Tas knows that he’s a devoted father, loving husband, kind friend, labor union brother, and someone working to build a better world for all. Tas would never pointlessly put his family’s well-being in jeopardy with reckless vandalism.

Indeed, Tas makes his political statements openly and non-violently. He openly believes that no family should live in poverty, that no American should go hungry, and that all North Dakotans deserve a good life and livable wages. Tas regularly rolls up his sleeves to do the real work, whether he’s supporting nurses on the picket line or collecting and donating food to hungry families. Tas is a good and innocent man, and we ask you to join to fight to keep Tas free from getting convicted to the fullest extent of retribution.

Unfortunately, it will cost up to $15,000 to secure Tas a quality defender, that he needs to cover the costs of the entire defense process. Like most Americans, Tas does not have such funds readily available. We humbly ask you to donate whatever you can to help keep Tas free. Whether it’s $5 or $500, whatever you can donate will truly make such a difference in the life of the Starks, Thank you!
