As COVID-19 spreads across the country, immigrants continue to be locked up in ICE detention without adequate medical or sanitary facilities. The undocumented community is shut out of state relief even as they provide the essential labor that keeps New York running.

Join us EVERY FRIDAY in the month of May by car or bike to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Bring signs, decorate your cars and bikes, honk your horns, make it clear to ICE and Cuomo that we are not going to stop fighting until all ICE concentration camps are shut down and the undocumented community wins permanent protection.

No one is free until everyone is free.

#FreeThemAll Fridays

DEMAND DIGNITY FOR ALL!

 Every Friday in May. 3 PM.

I'm in! How do I get involved in this action?

Let us know how you can participate HERE

OUR DEMANDS

1) We demand that Governor Cuomo use his emergency powers to order the release of all ICE detainees and people incarcerated in NY State to safeguard human life and public health amid COVID-19.

2) We demand that Governor Cuomo establish an immediate emergency relief fund for the undocumented community suffering from loss of jobs and income.

3) We demand that Governor Cuomo #CancelRent during COVID-19, not just defer evictions until later. Many undocumented people are struggling to pay rent due to the effects of this pandemic and will be in danger of losing their housing.

4) We demand that Governor Cuomo #ProtectAllWorkers. Immigrant workers and all workers need proper PPE, hazard pay, and paid sick leave. Immigrant workers are #EssentialNotDisposable.
