This fundraiser was created in support of the employees of UT-Battelle LLC working at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) who are fighting for life and liberty. 
UT-Battelle has mandated that all staff are required to receive COVID-19 vaccination by October 15th. Those who have submitted medical or religious exemptions have been met with discrimination and the unreasonable accommodation of unpaid leave. No accommodation has been provided that would allow employees with exemptions to continue to work at ORNL.
ORNL’s belligerent campaign against these employees not only jeopardizes the employees’ livelihood but also the physical and mental health of them and their families.  
To combat the tyranny and infringement of the rights of these workers, we are requesting donations to cover legal fees needed to stop the actions of UT-Battelle/ORNL and show the illegality of these actions on the national stage.

On Oct. 15, all staff with an approved religious accommodation of unpaid leave, were required to turn in their office keys, badges, clearances, and company equipment (laptops, phones, pagers, etc). 
Also on Oct. 15, an emergency temporary restraining order hearing was presided over by the Honorable Judge Atchley. At 5pm, he issued his ruling, granting the TRO. “Defendants [UT-Battelle] are hereby ENJOINED from terminating or placing on indefinite unpaid leave any employee who has received a religious or medical accommodation until such time a preliminary injunction hearing can be held.”
The preliminary injunction hearing is scheduled for Oct. 23.
Tomorrow, Monday Oct. 18, we will return to ORNL to retrieve temporary badges, keys, and equipment.
Thank you everyone for your support. It is your prayers and donations which enable us to defend our rights.

I am truly humbled and overjoyed with everyone's generosity and prayers. The hope this gives our group is immeasurable. I am unable to control my emotions. 
We will now be able to engage Mark Paoletta and the services of Schaerr Jaffe LLP to represent our case.
This initial amount supports the filing of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) to pause UT-Battelle for 14 days.
In that time, we need to raise an estimated $200k to file a Preliminary Injunction to stop UT-Battelle.
