Immigrants are essential. Without immigrant Americans, there is no essential workforce in America. Health care and child care. Farming and food systems. Construction and manufacturing. We are working with artists to make these stories known. True stories of immigrant essential workers on the front lines of both COVID-19 and climate disaster—making recovery possible.

Share immigrants’ stories. Tell politicians to act now.

We must pay, protect and honor all immigrant essential workers:

        — Living Wages and Job Protection
        — Access to COVID-19 Testing, Treatment & Care
        — Protected Status and Citizenship

Share Stories and Make Art!
