The Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights is fundraising to support undocumented families in the Washtenaw County area who might find themselves in difficult situations during this moment of crisis.

Many people have been laid off as efforts to stem the spread of the coronavirus bring everyday life to a standstill. But there’s one crucial difference: Undocumented immigrants can’t access benefits.

WICIR says: During these times we want to make sure that undocumented communities are not left behind. Our goal is to raise $25,000 and 100% of proceeds will go to undocumented families in Washtenaw County.
