Disney Cast Member…. it’s a title so many of us have worn proudly, some for decades.
That is until Disney decided they were above the law and went on a crusade to attack the religious convictions of Cast who sought an exemption to their Covid 19 vaccine mandate.
Unvaccinated cast members were singled out and subjected to overbearing PPE measures such as improperly used N95 masks all day outside, plus face shields and goggles in addition to the required masks, designated break areas marked with stickers to warn others of their status, harassment from other Cast and Guests, interrogation calls with HR, violation of privacy and medical information, and ignored in their many proper requests for resolution to the situation.
For a company who prides themselves on diversity and inclusion, it's very clear that this doesn't apply to those of Christian faith. Disney flat out refused to accept our religious beliefs, violating multiple laws, as well as our Constitutional right to privacy.
The way they treated us was disgusting, and they continued their violations even AFTER FL Statute 381.00317 was passed, prohibiting Florida employers like Disney from implementing Covid-19 vaccination mandates.
Disney has zero regard for the law and used intimidation and fear tactics to coerce their Cast Members into receiving an experimental vaccine, under the threat of losing their jobs. Grounded in our deep faith and desire for bodily autonomy, we took a stand against Disney, and it cost us our careers.
However, we refuse to give up and let these large corporations think they can get away with their discrimination.
Therefore, on December 23, 2022, seven of us former cast members filed a lawsuit against the Walt Disney Company. What started out as one united lawsuit, was court ordered to be severed into 7 separate lawsuits, even though the charges against Disney are the same for each plaintiff. The incredible burden this court order places on our legal resources cannot be understated. Instead of fighting ONE case, our lawyers have to now fight SEVEN cases.
Currently this is the largest lawsuit against an employer in the state of Florida. Not only are we seeking justice and accountability to Disney’s discriminatory actions towards us, but we want to set a precedent with ALL employers. Vaccine mandates and discriminatory PPE have NO place in a free society! In this modern day David vs Goliath situation, we need prayers and financial help. We are going up against Disney, a huge company with unlimited legal resources and funding. They are counting on us not being able to fund our case, and with our one case being split into seven, it turns the tide into their favor. We are humbly asking for financial help to continue this fight. If you’re able to donate toward our case, please click on the link below to do so.
All donations are directed straight to our legal fund. Your gift, however great or small, will go to help fund our legal team, pay court filing fees and call public attention to our case. A gift of $25.00 can go to pay for an hour of research for our case! It’s well expected that Disney is going to try to push the limit on this case, in hopes that we run out of funding to fight against their tyranny. Please help us ensure they don’t stand a chance in letting that happen!
We CANNOT let Disney get away with their discriminatory policies and their attack on our Christian faith.
Please help us hold them accountable and serve justice so they, and employers like them, will NEVER institute mandates or violate the rights of their employees again.
