This campaign is started by the Gordon family.
The funds will be used to help cover living costs as Tim, the sole bread-winner of his large (multi-race, multi-lingual) California family, lost his job at a Bakersfield Catholic High School after he defended (on twitter and on his YouTube channel) the inclusive rights of ALL colors of property owners and Americans against violence.
Tim, a JD, left the practice of law to pursue his true passion: teaching young adults. After many years of high-marked teaching, was "let go" from a yearly contract job (after signing the next year's contract) for exercising free speech while employed at a Bakersfield Catholic high school.
Tim’s differing opinions were not met with tolerance and acceptance.
Just this morning a band of intolerant private school kids with privilege started a petition to get Tim (a teacher, and sole breadwinner) fired from his teaching position. Just a few hours later he was sent an impersonal email notifying him he would not be returning to his position.
He never received a call from anyone at the school or Diocese of Frenso.
After many years of being part of this particular school's community or "family," the way Tim was terminated was abhorrent--never even getting to explain his side. Tim is well-known for taking a particular interest in all of his student's well being and is particularly known for his college-level honors classes. "Family" would never treat someone so awfully, especially a supposedly Catholic family.
Tim has six kids (one of whom is severely handicapped and is currently recovering from massive brain surgery--a hemisperectomy: the disconnection of the left side of the brain which was causing uncontrollable seizures). They will have to pay out of pocket for all the therapy their daughter needs now that he has lost his job. Anyone with special needs children know how vital insurance is to a family's financial stability. All of this was stripped away from the Gordons without one meeting or phone call.
The special-needs community is outraged at this.
Tim was the single breadwinner of the house. His wife stays home and homeschools all their children, especially the handicapped one.
Tim and his wife have chronicled the remarkable story of their child's heath struggles on Timothy Gordon's YouTube Channel and are well-established advocates for the special-needs community.
Loves family and God.
Devout Roman Catholic family.
