Support Family of Killed Delivery Worker

Last night at 10pm on July 8th 2021, DRUM member and food delivery worker Borkot Ullah was killed by a speeding car being chased by the NYPD. We are working with the community to arrange Borkot's janaza, to have his body sent home to Bangladesh, and to have his body transported to his village. We are working with Borkot's friends and family to arrange a vigil along with the janaza and will share once it is set. 100% of donations will go directly to supporting Borkots family both here and in Bangladesh whom he supported financially through his food delivery work.

Borkot is one of the many delivery workers who have lost their lives while on the job. Borkot fought for the rights of undocumented workers like himself. Borkot had been a DRUM member for a year and a half. He fled Bangladesh after encountering political repression and targeting there, and came here as a border crosser and was seeking asylum. Over the last year, Borkot was highly active in the fight to Fund Excluded Workers. He would ride his bike over to actions and rallies in Manhattan during his breaks. After a year of extreme financial hardship because of the pandemic, he was eagerly looking forward to the excluded worker fund check. Join us in supporting his loved ones during this difficult time.
