Against the advice of many of my friends (who have urged me not to spend any more time on this – as legal battles tend to suck your life away) I filed this lawsuit today – not just for me, but for every advocate who has been silenced.
My lawyers have argued that I cannot win – that “the opposition” has unlimited resources (and continuing this fight might take up another five years of my life) … but I wanted to make sure to share this full legal complaint with all of you because what has happened to me was fundamentally a civil rights violation (multiple civil rights violations actually) and an attempt to silence my voice in this work we all do together.

I am still interested in finding representation in this matter, so if you have any referrals to Oregon trial attorneys who might be interested in my case… please let me know! (Or a referral to an attorney who can support me in filing Pro Se.)
If you are inclined to make a contribution in support of my advocacy work (and in support of my work fighting this legal battle, of course that is always welcome! Here’s the GoFundMe link, here’s the chip-in link (via PayPal), here’s the link to subscribe with a monthly gift in support of my work (link) & my Venmo is “TamaraERubin”. Thank you!
