ZOOM: The Undocumented Community during COVID-19

April 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

What is being done to undocumented immigrants during the COVID-19 crisis is morally unforgivable.

Not only did Congress exclude undocumented Americans from COVID-19 relief packages, but our government continues to detain undocumented immigrants in overcrowded ICE facilities – putting them at extreme risk of contracting the virus.

We’re hosting an urgent webinar tomorrow to hear directly from those on the frontlines and discuss what we have to do to ensure protections for undocumented communities during this pandemic and beyond.

RSVP now to join our live webinar, April 14, at 8:00pm ET/5:00pm PT to join the effort to protect immigrants during this pandemic.

Any relief bills that cut out immigrants from accessing testing or economic aid are not only racist and xenophobic, but they harm our ability to contain this pandemic and restore our economy.

Immigrants are serving so many vital roles at the frontlines of our recovery from COVID-19. There are 1.7 million immigrant medical and health care workers caring for COVID-19 patients, not to mention the millions of farmworkers who are making sure that grocery stores and food banks are stocked.1

It’s essential that the next relief bill is passed as soon as possible and encompasses everyone. Join our webinar to learn more and find out how you can help.

Our panelists include:

  • Tolu Aleshinloye, Immigration Activist
  • Melissa Cetoute, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) Organizer, Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees
  • Sara Mora, National Immigrant Rights Activist and Digital Strategist

Together, we can ensure that all immigrant workers are included so that everyone can receive vital cash assistance, unemployment insurance, testing, and treatment.

We know that our most vulnerable communities (including immigrants, low-income people, and people of color) are being hit first and worst by this pandemic. It’s up to all of us to fight for one another and ensure that no one is left behind.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
