About this Campaign
The Trump administration has announced a new round of raids and mass arrests of undocumented immigrants. Farm & food workers - the people who nourish us on a daily basis - are especially vulnerable at this time. They claim that the raids will begin Sunday, but many places are already experiencing a spike in ICE arrests. Today, food and farm workers in DC, NYC, FL, and across the country are already experiencing threats from ICE. At the same time, immigration officers in Toronto, Canada, are conducting I.D. checks on the streets of that city.
HEAL Food Alliance & Food Chain Workers Alliance represent over 370,000 food workers, and we are preparing a rapid response fund to ensure the safety of our members. This emergency rapid response fund will directly support bail, legal fees, and other emergency needs of our members in the face of these raids. Help us prepare NOW so that we can respond swiftly to support food and farm workers and their families.If you like, you can create your own fundraising page through our donation system here and create teams as well.

How Will Funds Be Disbursed?
The HEAL Food Alliance and Food Chain Workers Alliance are accepting requests from affected workers and their families who are members of our member organizations across the United States and Canada, and distributing funds directly to those affected by ICE raids. We have also made a $2,000 donation to the UFCW Local 1529 Emergency Fund, so they can similarly distribute cash directly to workers in need in Mississippi. (Updated August 10)
