Imagine showing up to work one day and being told to go home and not come back. That you won’t get paid for the work you have done since the last time you were paid and that you don’t qualify for any of the federal and state benefits put in place for the pandemic. No unemployment, paid sick leave, or stimulus check.
This is the reality for many immigrant families working in Spokane. The situation is dire as many service industry businesses have been closed and immigrant families are excluded from most government assistance passed by Congress.
In response, the Spokane Immigrant Rights Coalition (SIRC) is working to provide financial support to immigrant families who are impacted by the pandemic and don’t qualify for federal and state benefits. Please donate today to help us raise the money needed to help immigrant families pay rent and meet basic needs. 100% of your donation will go directly to immigrant families in Spokane.
