On #GivingTuesdayNow, we're asking you to support the Workers Center of CNY in organizing with low wage and immigrant workers to change the system that left them unprotected and unsupported in the face of a global pandemic.
An estimated 6 million undocumented immigrants are working in essential jobs in the US. But they have been excluded from federal aid packages.
Like others, we have transformed our work in the face of the Covid-19 crisis. We have mobilized with members, supporters and allies to respond to the immediate needs of the most vulnerable, delivering groceries to isolated families, distributing hundreds of masks to farmworkers, and providing language appropriate resources to immigrant workers.
But, we know we need to do more. We need to uproot the system that treats so many essential workers as criminals, and that has failed to provide the most basic protections in this unprecedented time of need. And, to be successful, we need to ensure low wage workers are at the front of organizing efforts.
Your donation will help us build power with low wage and immigrant workers to push for the structural changes we need!
