James Damore Starts Legal Fund for Google Lawsuit

James Damore, the former Google software engineer who has filed a class action lawsuit against the company alleging discrimination towards conservatives, has opened a legal fee donation fund.

Damore, the software engineer who was fired from the company last year following the publishing of his now infamous memo, has opened a legal donation fund for those that wish to donate to his fight against the huge tech company. Damore used the website Funded Justice, which allows people to contribute donations to legal cases. The description of Damore’s campaign on Funded Justice includes the following details:

We are the men and women plaintiffs (named and anonymous) in the Google lawsuit alleging workplace bias against women and men with views perceived as conservative; men; and Caucasian/Asian people who work at Google, worked at Google, or applied to work at Google but were not hired because of Google’s unlawful employment practices. Some of us were fired for our views or other protected characteristics. Some of us have been bullied, silenced, shamed, humiliated, and retaliated against for raising issues about Google’s quotas, blacklists, and discrimination against those who challenge its workplace practices. Google is the most powerful corporation in the world, worth over $700 billion and with an ability to affect every aspect of our lives. To fight against Google’s misconduct, and to protect the rights of all Google employees/applicants, we need the support of people like you at any dollar level to make sure that we get our day in court, and have the resources we need to win this fight. These funds are not for the plaintiffs’ personal expenses or use but for the legal case only. Please help — and share!

Damore tweeted a link to the fund along with a video:

Many have asked us how they could support the lawsuit, so we created a Funded Justice campaign:https://t.co/XDQEvNx4ZA
