Message from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford  - October 3, 2018

I cannot express how grateful I am for the outpouring of support and generosity that we have received through this GoFundMe account. I believed and still believe that it was my civic duty to come forward, but this is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, much harder even than I thought it would be. And not just for me, but for my husband and our sons, for my relatives who still live in the Washington area, and the friends who have stood up on my behalf.

I feel like all of you who have made a contribution are on this journey with me, which is very heartening. And some journey it has been and continues to be. We have already had to move four times, our movements are limited even with security, and the threats are ongoing. Thanks to you, I am able to feel safe, my family can be together, and my children can continue to go to school.

The costs for security, housing, transportation and other related expenses are much higher than we anticipated and they do not show signs of letting up. Funds received via this account will be used to help us pay for these mounting expenses.

Please know how much we appreciate your moral support and your contribution,
Christine

Christine Blasey Ford demonstrated a huge amount of courage speaking out this week.  She did not initially come forward because she was scared of the response.  She was right to be scared.  Not only has the right wing smear machine started, but she is receiving serious threats against her and has had to engage a security force to protect her family.  This is all really expensive and she needs our help.  We need to protect the voices of brave people who speak out - especially when they are part of our community.

Christine is a Palo Alto mom, a beloved professor and mentor and friend.  This fundraiser is sponsored by her neighbors and colleagues.  She is truly grateful for your support!

Please note that we will not withdraw any of these funds.  The family has been named the sole beneficiary and her husband will take the funds directly from GoFundMe.
