This year has been especially challenging for us all. Many have lost their lives, their jobs, and their homes. While others have experienced, and continue to experience, a progression of losses to their civil rights.
“Unprecedented” seems to be the go-to word to describe what we have experienced thus far. Despite the obstacles we’ve faced, our immigrant community continues to embody strength, resilience, and grace. In this moment, we are acutely aware of the importance of our work and the impact we have on the lives of those living on the margins. In the face of the many challenges ahead, NMIC will continue to:
•Provide access to address immediate crises.
•Support families who rely on us, and whose lives have become even more difficult.
•Connect community members to sustainable resources for self-sufficiency.
We can’t do it alone, we need you. Take your time to gather your thoughts. This is hard work. And when you’re ready, we will be waiting for you gathering in community, organizing, fighting for equitable access.
Yours in Community,
Maria Lizardo, LMSW
