Not a day goes by at ShareTrails (Sharetrails.org) that we fail to discover another issue of access that could benefit from our involvement. Since we do not have unlimited resources we must prioritize. We do this by looking for issues in which we think we may play a useful role and are likely to prevail. There is a plethora of such issues out there and we’d really like to be able to get after more of them.
If we are going to prove to the world of access advocacy that we are a force to be reckoned with we need to increase our presence in the ring. In a normal month our legal bill, by itself, is around $5K. When we are actively involved in litigation our bill can amount to many multiples of that. Figuring out ways to pay for all of that while keeping the rent paid and the lights on occupies most of my time. Failing to do so is not an option. We do not exist simply to perpetuate our own existence. We’re here to fight and win.
