Why we’re raising money
“I have lost everything: my job, my housing and my reputation. I have been called every vile name imaginable & presented as a monster by the media for daring to speak about Joe Biden and what happened in 1993. I have lost all that & more but I am free.”Tara Reade, 2020
Tara needs help NOW to save her from homelessness! Please donate to keep her and her two cats safe and fed!
Your support means the world to her, and to us.
Team Tara here! We are a group of supporters and survivors support Tara Reade after her life was turned upside down for the “crime” of telling the truth about what happened to her in Joe Biden’s office.
After she came forward, the campaign, and its servants in the media has spread lies about Tara, and these have taken away her ability to earn a living. She had to leave her community after defamatory, politically-motivated articles ruined her reputation and prompted the termination of her lease. It’s nearly impossible for anyone to get a job in times of COVID, and it’s even harder for where the first page of Google results has national publications repeating slanders gaslighting her and her supporters, and where an Internet mob has turned its attacks not just on her, but on anyone who associates with her.
Tara is a regular person who, before she came forward, and before COVID, was a renter living paycheck to paycheck, just like the majority of Americans. Since May, she hasn’t been able to earn any money, despite sending out many applications. She has been offered, but refused, money from people who wanted to twist her story and make her into a political pawn. But she needs your help now. She doesn’t have, nor does she seek, an easy life of luxury, but she needs and deserves to be able to survive in simple dignity.
CAT FOOD: $25
CAR INSURANCE: $50
CAR MAINTENANCE: $100
RENT (Incl. all utilities): $1700
CELL PHONE: $70
EMERGENCY FUND: $100
TOTAL: $2695. If we can come together as a community and raise this, she can live, and we can show the people who would destroy her that WE are all we need.
All of your donations will go to helping Tara survive. THANK YOU!!!
In addition, Tara’s friends and supporters created this GoFundMe page to help with her safety and security costs first, and legal costs second. At her request, the first 50 percent will be donated to NVRDC, a nonprofit that gives survivors of sexual assault physical, emotional and legal services.
Since bravely coming forward with her harrowing story of Joe Biden’s sexual assault, Tara Reade has been experiencing retaliation in all areas of her life, including death threats.
Tara couldn’t turn to TimesUp because of interference from Biden’s political operatives, so we need to step up for her. Nobody should be attacked for telling the truth. If more is raised than Tara needs, all will be given to nonprofits supporting sexual assault and domestic violence survivors.
