Give Today To The Legal Fund For Jeremy Story and Dustin Clark
$80,000 Needed

Arrested and Jailed

Two fathers from the City of Round Rock, TX, Dustin Clark & Jeremy Story, were arrested Friday, September 17, 2021 and accused of hindering proceedings by disorderly conduct.  Dustin was arrested for participating by telling the board the unlawfully passed a tax increase during the Tuesday, September 14, 2021 RRISD Board Meeting.  Jeremy was arrested for being drug out of a school board meeting by cops on 8/16/21 after calmly speaking during public comments.  Neither men were arrested on the days of their supposed offenses.  Jeremy was speaking regarding the credible evidence of assault allegations against the Superintendent and pointing out 5 of 7 board member’s attempts to cover up and avoid public discussion on the matter.

Dustin Clark is a businessman and former Army Captain.  Jeremy Story is a minister and President of a national ministry to college students.

These two courageous men were attending the board meeting on Tuesday as concerned residents and voiced their concerns about the illegal actions of the board that evening who were refusing to let the community into the board meeting. The Board used police officers to block entry to the board meeting and only allowed 16 seated attendees into the 375 person capacity board room and which also accommodated 80+ in June. This was a clear violation of the Open Meetings Act.

The school board and Superintendent retaliated against these two parents with a rushed unlawful arrest made suddenly in a day after Jeremy Story filed a legal grievance against the district.  An exception was made to detail them overnight in jail in a move that was designed to silence the community.  The community has rallied to raise $20,000 to support these brave parents.  They will collectively need about $80,000 total in their legal fund to fight against this overreach for all of us, so please consider making a donation to their legal fees. Thank you.
