Nobody left behind! Support our undocumented community members who are left out of the formal economy and the trillion-dollar stimulus plan.
Undocumented individuals are not able to access unemployment benefits, Medicare, federal social services and resources/services from many federally funded organizations and programs. This leaves our community at risk of being left without the proper resources they need to survive. And in the midst of this pandemic, everyone needs to be safe for all of us to be safe.
The money you donate to this fund will provide immediate financial support for undocumented families, and enable them to stay home and healthy — protecting themselves, their families and their communities while slowing the spread of the coronavirus.
