In honor of Women’s History Month in March, we’re celebrating the immigrant women essential workers who are making invaluable sacrifices and contributions to our communities on the frontlines of the Covid-19 crisis.
Essential workers, many of whom are undocumented immigrants and women, are risking their lives during this deadly pandemic to care for our communities, keep our buildings clean and safe, and ensure we have food on the table.
Join the Immigrant Women Are Home campaign to push Congress to act quickly in providing a pathway to citizenship for all essential workers and help build a country where everyone can thrive and reach their full potential.
Here are two ways you can take action:
