Update #3

We have a huge update in Holly Tatum's Case!

We have finally unraveled the web of deception surrounding Holly's plight only to discover a malicious plot developed by a racist disgruntled co-worker and Holly's racist boss who collaborated to ensure Holly's firing and filed multiple false allegations against her with local authorities.

Check out this three minute video for the latest update on Holly's case:

Thank you so much for your donation to Holly's fight! That said, we are DESPERATE to meet our $5,000 goal in the next 24 hours to keep this family afloat as Holly fights to clear her name and get back on her feet after she unexpectedly lost her job and had to subsequently invest in home security to protect her family due to persistent police harassment.

If you are able, please considere another sustainable donation to help us reach the finish line, and share Holly's campaign with others who may also be able to help. The link for this campaign page is here:

Update #2

Thank you so much for your continued support for Holly Tatum and her family!

Just a couple of days ago, Holly and I had an in depth conversation wherein we connect Gainesville's extensive history of racial violence and white supremacist culture to present day racism which thrives in the community. Be sure to take some time to hear Holly's story first hand. Our full conversation is available here:
https://youtu.be/mrr3Aq4L48U

As you know from our last update, last week, we installed surveillance and security system for the Tatum home, as well as the wifi necessary to operate the system so as to deter local authorities from their harassment of the family. Now, as the EEOC continues their investigation into the racist circumstances surrounding Holly's firing from Wheeler Place Assited Living, we are launching an independent investigation into the corrupt collaborations taking place between the Gainesville Police Department and local racists determined to preserve white supremacy in their community by any means necessary. We are working with licensed professionals to secure evidence that will fully expose how Holly was targeted by her former employer, and local authorities who collaborated to silence and prevent her from speaking out about racial harassment and discrimination in her workplace and neighborhood.

With your help, we are now are half way to our overall goal of $5000! THANK YOU! Please continue to support our work as we continue our fight for justice for Holly by documenting and validating her experience as a black mother in Gainesville, TX.

It takes a great deal of courage to fight and speak up in a community like Gainesville, TX and we can only create change in communities like this by supporting those brave enough to lead the way! Please continue to support Holly's fight by making another donation and/or sharing her story on your social media and directly with antiracist friends/family.

Together We Rise!

Update #1

Thank you all so much for supporting Holly Tatum and her family!

So far this week we made just enough to purchase the surveillance and security system for the Tatum home, as well as the wifi necessary to operate the system! This is a HUGE relief for the family but also an essential tool to deter the continued harrassment of local authorities. It will also allow us to document their property and afford allibis should the authorities choose to file any more false allegations against Holly. Your generous donations have made this possible!

Currently, the EEOC is investigating the circumstances around Holly's firing from Wheeler Place, as they suspect racial discrimination to be the cause after reviewing all of the evidence we provided. Additionally, Holly is in touch with the ACLU who is providing legal guidance to her along the way, as they are already investigating corruption within the Gainesville Police Department. In the meantime, we are determined to continue to lift Holly's voice and share her experience of racism as a black woman with a family living in Gainesville, TX.

Holly starts her new job in a few weeks but as a family that was already living paycheck to paycheck, the Tatum's are now behind on rent and utilities. Additionally, Holly is dealing with heavy anxiety because of the attacks on her family. She is tired she will be taken to jail on false allegations. This considered, we are rallying to raise $1000 more in the next 24 hours to ensure the family's bills are covered until Holly gets her new paycheck but also to get Holly into trauma counseling. It takes a great deal of courage to fight and speak up in a community like hers and we can only create change in communities like this by supporting those brave enough to lead the way! Please continue to support Holly by making another donation and/or sharing Holly's story on your social media or directly with a friend or family member inclined to support anti-racist activism.
