Hello, my name is Karen Johnson. I am a University Professor, a wife, a Dog mom, deeply faith-based, and a dear friend of Carlos Watson and the entire Watson family
I have created this campaign on behalf of the family and friends of Carlos Watson to raise funds to support Carlos during a very challenging time. We would not have created this campaign unless we believed fully and completely in his innocence.
Like me, Carlos Watson was born to a West Indian Father, ( https://www.ozy.com/ozy-tribe/carlos-watson/1329/). His family strongly believes in service, faith, and hard work. That is why my Mommy (who is no longer with us) DEEPLY LOVED Carlos and the entire Watson family. They reminded her of her own family and Carlos is like her own son.
We know Carlos to be a man of faith, unimpeachable integrity and honesty. That is why the unfair characterizations in the press both break our hearts and motivate us to ask for your help to raise these funds. The truth is exactly opposite to the media reports. Carlos is deeply committed to truth, service, education, and community. He is also committed to social justice and to lifting up the underserved, especially youth made vulnerable by social and structural risks.
This is not the first time that we have seen a good man be unfairly accused and unjustly charged. Sadly, history is filled with such examples, especially ones of black men who try to build and as he is building, lift others. History is also filled with examples of people who, though unfairly accused, go on to prove their innocence with the help of community members who rally to their side.
Can you help us to rally for Carlos and to reach our $75,000 goal?
We have a big fight on our hands but Carlos has been knocked down before and has always gotten back up. That is why he is so committed to the struggle of others. That is why we are so committed to him.
Will you help us to support him in this fight?
No gift is too small. Funds will be used to support and maintain Carlos, as well as for administrative and legal expenses, as he defends himself and fights for justice.
Can you also help us spread the word? We need everyone's help.
