WASHINGTON вЂ” A fund dedicated to aiding victims of sexual harassment and assault is giving $750,000 in grants to local organizations across the country.
The Times Up Legal Defence Fund is announcing its first round of grants to 18 organizations to help support low-wage and domestic workers who have experienced sexual misconduct in the workplace.
