PAPERS YES. CRUMBS NO.
Join Cosecha in Washington D.C. on May 1st.
1. #FreeThemAll by using emergency powers to order the release of all ICE detainees and incarcerated people locked up in New York State to safeguard human life and public health.
2. #DefundThePolice, and remove them from schools, emergency rooms, subways, and mental health crisis response. Withdraw state funding for all police departments across New York State. Tear up police contracts with state agencies, including social services and care services.
3. Establish an immediate emergency relief fund for the undocumented community who are suffering from loss of jobs and income, left out of federal/state relief, and cannot qualify for unemployment benefits.
4. #CancelRent during COVID-19, don’t just defer evictions until later. Many New Yorkers, especially undocumented people, are struggling to pay rent due to the effects of this pandemic and will be in danger of losing their housing.
5. #ProtectAllWorkers. Immigrant workers and all workers need proper PPE, hazard pay, and paid sick leave. Immigrant workers are #EssentialNotDisposable. Don’t allow schools to reopen in unsafe conditions, putting teachers, students, and their families at risk. Don’t use police to harass sex workers, and stop arresting people for #WalkingWhileTrans.
Before becoming president, Joe Biden made lots of promises to our community—a moratorium on deportations and swift action on immigration reform. Now that he's in office, he has deported thousands of immigrants and excluded undocumented workers from the COVID stimulus bill. Our families are struggling and Biden is only offering us crumbs and empty promises.
If Biden does not guarantee permanent protection for all 11 million undocumented immigrants by May 1, we will mobilize to DC to demand it ourselves. Join undocumented workers and families across the country on May 1 International Workers Day in DC to say Papers Yes, Crumbs No!
INTRODUCING NYC ICEWATCH
We've partnered with Cosecha NYC and Sunset Park ICE Watch to build NYC ICE Watch.
NYC ICE Watch trains individuals and neighborhoods to look out for ICE activity, know it when they see it, and interfere to protect our communities. We also work to build infrastructure for collective city-wide rapid response.
Sign up for our latest ICE Watch training at bit.ly/ICEWatchTraining. Interested in joining our rapid-response Signalboost? On Signal, text “Hello” to (718) 866-3391 to be notified immediately of any verified ICE activity.

What is Nonviolent Direct Action?
Nonviolent direct action (often known as civil disobedience) is the purposeful and public defiance of the law to motivate political or social change.
Can I still be involved if I don't want to be arrested?
Yes! We need jail support, police liaisons, art, media outreach, and more. Sign up below to help out in whatever way you can
