Emergency Financial Relief for Students, immigrants, and Workers Left Out

Friday, April 10, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic is exposing what we have always known: our nation’s deep inequalities and broken safety net programs leave millions of people without help or relief. While we applaud Congress’ quick and decisive steps to help American households weather the economic fallout, we know there are millions of families bearing the brunt of this crisis who won’t receive a check, won’t get unemployment, and won’t be caught by our country’s broken safety net.

With generous support from philanthropists and community members, we're raising money to put directly into the hands of the people who need it most: low income and immigrant families who rely on informal, part time, or gig work; small business owners, artists, and entrepreneurs devastated by the economic collapse; and college students who won't receive government checks or unemployment benefits.
