South Jersey Undocumented Solidarity Fund
There are many who have lost their jobs, experienced reduced working hours, are dealing with health issues from the virus, and potentially face unexpected funeral costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the undocumented immigrant community is excluded from unemployment insurance and has been left out of other federally funded programs.
The current crisis with COVID-19 has revealed what many immigrant workers have always known. While our society now classifies their work in agriculture, food processing, and services as essential to keeping our grocery shelves stocked with food and our economy running, they have always been treated as expendable.
CATA has created a fund as a concrete way to distribute financial support to undocumented individuals and families throughout Southern New Jersey who are struggling due to the COVID-19 crisis. We appreciate any amount you can give.
