I will also use some of these funds to make donations to worker centers because they know how to help the collective and the community.
I do not believe it is appropriate for me to communicate specific details of my undocumented family's relief at receiving help, it is a betrayal of their trust in me. I will not feed a dynamic of charity-giving that requires a manifestation of pain for the giver to feel rewarded. Just know that on several occasions, the women I have shared Community Funds with have cried, once to the point of not being able to utter one word, twice to the point of saying this reinforced their belief that there was a God.
Sharing what we have reinforces my belief that to be human is to have the capacity for empathy. And I hope you can all help me take care of the most vulnerable among us.
