As we continue the work of our Immigrant Rights Fund—an emergency and long-term response fund launched in the weeks after the 2016 Presidential Election—our communities’ needs are evolving and deepening, creating a “new normal” amidst an almost constant onslaught of urgency and crises.

 

Laundry Workers Center

To support the Laundromat Campaign, a multifaceted, immigrant women-led campaign that provides training and resources so that laundromat workers can advocate for equitable, safe, and dignified workplaces through workplace organizing and city-wide legislation. Funds will focus on Brooklyn’s Latinx immigrant workers in retail, laundromat, and food service industries.

Chinese-American Planning Council

For the "Advancing Our CommUNITY" strategy in Brooklyn to connect the organization's long-term social services work to new social change strategies, including civic engagement (Know Your Rights, Voter Registration, Census 2020) , policy/advocacy (increased advocacy around legislative priorities), and community mobilization (training for staff on immigrant rights, economic and racial justice, policy advocacy, and community organizing)/
