Help fight racist landlord

Hey folks 

I’m a single Dad who recently moved to Portland Oregon from Oakland California. I moved up here to get custody of my son and provide a better life for both of us. I moved in the middle of the coronavirus and that within itself was challenging. I found a wonderful apartment, so I thought and moved into the NW district of Portland. It turned out the person who owned the building was a racist and did everything in his power to make my son and I not feel welcome or comfortable at all. We were constantly harassed, belittled and threatened.  The landlord would come to apartment unannounced to do “checks on the property”. He wrote many letters saying he did not want my type of people in the building as well as told me I needed to tell him when I have guest coming to the building. He constantly questioned my whereabouts and the behavior of my son. He also got my car towed and made it known that I was not welcome by putting negative thoughts in my neighbors heads. He even accused me of dealing drugs because my windows were closed. We ll I’m fed up and currently suing him and needs funds to retain my lawyer. I am also asking for help to move into a better home. We have been accepted to rent a beautiful home in NE Portland from wonderful inclusive people. I am hoping to raise funds to fight this injustice and move on with our lives.
