Between March and May 2020, GCIR conducted more than 50 interviews with immigrant-serving organizations across the state, representing a wide range of populations, geographies, issues, and strategies. These interviews sought to explore: pressing concerns related to COVID-19; strategies being deployed to address these concerns; current organizational capacity; and top policy and advocacy strategies at the local, state, and federal level.
These interviews revealed that immigrant-serving and immigrant-led organizations across the state are stretched to their limits. They are working to address urgent basic needs, test new strategies, and advocate for structural change, while managing capacity and other organizational challenges.
