2020 has been a challenging year. We know that many of you, as well as many in our communities, have faced the trials of this pandemic – the vulnerability of working families, the isolation and separation from family, the economic hardship, and the loss of loved ones and friends.
At the same time, we have seen in these last months the strength of our society. We have seen hundreds of thousands of people speaking up and speaking out for racial justice. We have also seen communities come together collectively in mutual aid efforts to care for our neighbors and friends, sharing food, resources, and more during the pandemic. We saw the strength of a movement for new national leadership that ultimately has given us some new possibilities for seeking justice in 2021. We should feel heartened by what is possible when we come together in community!
We are excited to share with you some of what we were able to achieve in 2020 with YOUR support, and we believe that 2021 holds promise for even greater strides forward in achieving dignity and respect for the immigrant community.
