It is the middle of the night here, and I am thinking about the day I just spent in Orlando. I went with a representative from Southern Legal Counsel to help raise support and awareness about the lawsuit they are pursuing for Florida’s public schools. The firm has three attorneys who now are working pro bono and non stop to prepare for the March 15th, 2016 trial in Tallahassee.
The firm has only 3 1/2 attorneys. This means that they cannot take on new fee based cases on which the firm depends. They are raising donations to help pay expenses for the trial. They need your help! If you or someone you know can donate, please send a check or go online to their website and donate.
These three people are working for us. They have been at it since 2009. This case has gone on that long because they had to go to the State Supreme Court just to get the right to go to trial.
The website is: http://www.southernlegal.org/index.php/quality-education/ There is a donate button at the bottom of the page.
I am not a fund raiser at heart, and the League as an organization does not raise money for lawsuits. I am, however, as an individual sending another check tomorrow. I hope some of you can as well. It does not have to be a large amount, there just have to be a lot of you who send help.
