iPhone : Our member Felipe joined the hunger strike after going a year w/o any relief, he lost his brother to COVID-19, was hospitalized himself with COVID, and lost his apartment unable to pay rent.

Felipe, joined the hunger strike because he urgently needed relief. #FundExcludedWorkers

Its about time that the labor of undocumented workers is recognized.

iPhone : This is about the dignity of all labor.

It's a down payment on what we owe our neighbors who lost so much.

It's solidarity, not charity.
