Ed Buck, a one-time celebrated and sought-after donor to the Democratic candidates and elected officials in California, faces nine felonies in federal court, including two counts of distribution of controlled substances resulting in death. Black death, to be exact. One count for the 2017 death of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore and one for the death of 55-year-old Timothy Dean in 2019.
Ed Buck's trial will take place over approximately two weeks beginning on July 13, 2021.
A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise money to help support the families and survivors with local transportation, meals, and whatever else they may need throughout the duration of the trial.
We would like to be able to hold at least two group dinners for everyone at no charge to the survivors or family members on the first day of the trial and on the day when the jury comes back with their verdict.
Since the trial starts in less than one week, we are asking the community to support our efforts to support the survivors and family members.
Any money not used will be transferred to the Justice 4 Gemmel and All of Ed Buck's Victim's Legal Fund that is supporting costs associated with suing Ed Buck in civil court on behalf of the families of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean.
Thank you for your support!
