***IMPORTANT UPDATE***
April 20, 2021
The payment processor for GiveSendGo has deactivated my account because it has deemed me at "high risk for disputes." So for now please donate using my PayPal account paypal.me/blairjackie or my Go Fund Me (https://gofund.me/c496b472)- whichever you feel more comfortable using. Thank you very much to everyone for your donations. I appreciate it very much and am so sorry for the inconvenience. If you have already donated, please know that your donation has either been received or put on hold for 120 days. I want to be clear this is not GiveSendGo but the third party payment processor used by GiveSendGo.



***ORIGINAL STORY***:
My name is Jackie Blair, I work as dining service staff at Smith College. I also happen to be white, which should not be relevant, but Smith College has made clear it is. In the summer of 2018 I was falsely accused of racism by a black student on her Facebook page and my life has not been the same since. 

My story was recounted in a recent New York Times article.

I have obtained legal counsel and have filed an internal complaint against Smith College administration in response to their treatment of me. I started this fundraiser to help me pay my legal expenses, as well as personal expenses (including medical and therapy bills) and living expenses in the case I am either terminated or am otherwise forced out of my job as a result of speaking out about this.
