The COVID-19 pandemic is having detrimental impact on local day laborers who often include, undocumented immigrant and migrant workers. Many service sector jobs have vanished as restaurants and small businesses have closed, and day laborer jobs have disappeared. These hard working families will NOT get any payments from the Federal Government $2.2 trillion COVID-19 relief package so there is no income for food or housing.
Pasadenans Organizing for Progress (POP!) announced that it is donating $5,000 to the National Day Laborer Organizing Network’s (NDLON) Immigrant Worker Safety Net Fund to provide resources in support of immigrant and low wage workers at the Pasadena Job Center.
POP! and NDLON have partnered to work on many social justice issues in Pasadena including worker and immigrant rights. POP!’s donation is a way of expressing solidarity with Pasadenans most affected by this health and economic crisis.
Please join POP! in donating to help support local Pasadenans through the Immigrant Worker Safety Net Fund.
Pasadenans Organizing for Progress is a multi-issue community organization whose mission is to make Pasadena a more just, fair, and inclusive city.
