Call Congress and demand #COVIDRelief4All

TOOLKIT

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating economic impact on the most vulnerable populations. Undocumented immigrants are among those hardest hit by this crisis. Excluding them from relief is inhumane. Join us in this Day of Action to demand Congress to include all people in any relief efforts.

 

Below, find Alan’s story, a Latinx construction worker in Houston, TX who lost his job at the start of the #COVID19 pandemic and has been excluded from receiving relief because he lacks lawful immigration status.

Please, share Alan’ story and call your Members of Congress and tell them: Millions of immigrants have not received a penny from COVID-19 relief efforts and continue struggling to survive. If everyone is covered we are all protected.

Here is a suggested message to call your representatives

 

Hello Congressperson,

 

My name is [your name] from [city, state]. Millions of immigrants have not received a penny from COVID-19 relief efforts and continue struggling to survive. Please make sure that everyone is included in the next COVID-19 relief package no matter their immigration status. Immigrants and their families are essential and need relief now. If everyone is covered we are all protected.

 

Thank you.
