Can you imagine how it feels not knowing whether you or your family will be able to stay with you after 2020? Under what conditions? The anguish and despair that many families face are putting an unwarranted strain on them driving wedges between them and their communities.
How can you create a future for your children if you don’t know what the future holds, will your family be torn apart? Will your children be forced to live in a country they don’t know, away from their friends and social connections?
In June 2016, after the Brexit referendum result, the3million was founded by a group of dedicated EU citizens living in the UK. A dream for every EU citizen in the UK of maintaining their rights was formed. Since then we have been working tirelessly, researching, campaigning and creating awareness for the plight of EU citizens living in the UK.
Over the last year, we have built a real momentum over citizens' rights and together with British in Europe, we have become the voice and the face of citizens in the Brexit negotiations. We have developed an incredible capacity to build policy proposals, legal responses and media releases, all of which is done by our team of volunteers.
The campaign has also taken us to Westminster and Brussels on almost a weekly basis for the last 2 years, which would not have been possible without the donations of citizens like you who believe the3million and British in Europe are making a difference in the Brexit negotiations.
In the coming months, we’ll still continue with our lobbying activities to ensure that EU citizen’s rights are protected in the UK, but we’ll also be providing community outreach and advice.
We represent three million EU citizens here who are being used as bargaining chips in the Brexit negotiations. We represent their friends, families and co-workers who are affected by the Brexit process.
We are asking you to donate as much as you can to take the3million to the next chapter and help cement our future so we can fight for the rights of all EU citizens in the UK and help us to support local communities.
The Near Future
Our next step is to establish the charity and become a force of change. We need £100,000 to help establish the3million, set-up the charity, office, media campaigns, research, outreach, promotion and advertising. This will also allow up to employ two amazing campaigners for a few days a week to focus on our goals and promote the message of the3million. In addition, this will support the dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make this dream a reality. Please donate what you can and encourage your friends and family to donate for a better and brighter future.
Please give today so the UK will still be their home in 2020, and we can create a stronger society through unity.
How will the Money be Spent
Main Target £100,000
Since July 2016, we have been running the main advocacy campaign to make the case for EU citizens to retain the same rights after Brexit, under the protection of the Withdrawal Agreement. The campaign is supported by an active media relations function.
We are building a support network for EU citizens through outreach services, so everyone has access to the most accurate and up to date information, either online, on social media, through their employer, their trade union or their community leaders.
