As undocumented families face escalating threats to their health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the government continues to exclude them from any kind of federal assistance, including unemployment benefits and stimulus checks. It is clear that at this moment it is up to those with resources to be in solidarity and provide mutual aid to our immigrant siblings in need.
We ask you to contribute stimulus funds you receive to support our immigrant neighbors. The funds will be used to support undocumented folks whose livelihoods are being affected by COVID-19. Whether it’s from a decline in business for street vendors or lay-offs in domestic and restaurant industries, we seek to help alleviate some of the financial stress on undocumented community members living in Wisconsin.
We encourage those who earned above the threshold for receiving stimulus checks to contribute a similar amount (around $1,200).
We are an extension of this effort (fb.com/ayudamutuamke
). There are multiple options as to how to contribute: Venmo, Paypal - let us know when you're ready to donate!
We will reach out to you with periodic updates and reminders to contribute as the stimulus checks roll out!
