Centro Legal de la Raza: Oakland Undocumented Relief Fund

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

Centro Legal de la Raza, along with community partners, created the Oakland Undocumented Relief Fund to provide critical support to immigrant Oakland workers who have lost their jobs and income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the agressive public health measures necessary to combat the spread of this disease.

While many Oaklanders can turn to existing safety net programs, including unemployment insurance, public benefits, and new federal and local relief efforts –  undocumented workers are largely excluded from those programs. OUR Fund will address this critical gap in our social safety net, and will help support the most vulnerable members of our community who are impacted by this crisis.
