COVID Relief for undocumented families in NM

My name is Eduardo I grew up in a mixed status family in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I am the Programs Manager for New Mexico Dream Team, a state-wide, youth lead immigrant rights organization.  As an organization made up of directly affected young people we are seeing firsthand the impacts that the COVID Pandemic is having on our communities.

I and on behalf of New Mexico Dream Team am asking for your help. We will be getting monetary assistance directly to undocumented families in New Mexico as they need it during this crisis. Anything you can donate helps. If you cannot donate please share with your friends and family that are in a position to be able to help out.  We need funds as soon as possible.

For some of us our parents are still going out to work everyday as they have now been deemed "essential workers", they are exposing themselves to higher risk to be able to make ends meet but they are unsure for how much longer that is even possible.
My friends' parents are still going to clean houses and others have been laid off, everyone is just trying to figure it out the best they can.

With the supposed relief that is coming to Americans, undocumented people are ineligible but are one of the groups that will be hit the hardest. So many of our people are on the front lines of this crisis and have the most financial risk on top of that.

Yet we keep fighting. We are undocumented, unafraid, unapologetic and we know we will overcome this pandemic together; taking care of each other with love and compassion.



100% of these funds (minus what gofundme takes) will be going to undocumented families
