Happy May Day!

VIEW FULL UPDATE HERE


Hello Friend! This Saturday is May Day, also known as International Workers' Day! Every year millions gather around the Earth celebrating the wins of workers' rights & labor movements and to elevate ongoing demands for rights -- from a living wage, to paid sick leave for all, to pay equity, to dignified conditions for farmworkers, to Indian farmworkers' struggles, to a just and equitable transition for energy workers exiting the fossil fuel economy. Check out this less than 2 minute brief history on May Day from Working Class History! This May Day and throughout the month of May we are asking folks in our community to contribute to #ShareMyCheck. #ShareMyCheck is a community-led economic justice project to redistribute federal stimulus funds and surplus household monthly income to members of our undocumented immigrant community who do not qualify for many government aid programs despite the fact that they have lost their livelihoods due to the pandemic & government neglect. This article in North Jersey discusses some of the barriers our undocumented neighbors face in the US. Undocumented folks don't qualify for unemployment benefits and the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package passed last month doesn't provide stimulus funds to nonresidents, temporary workers or those in the country without papers. It does improve on previous aid packages by including mixed-status families, who have either a spouse or child who are legal residents or citizens (rather than punishing legal residents in mixed-status family households through exclusion like Trump did) -- but this still leaves millions in our immigrant communities without the support they need despite the critical role we play in our communities and economy. Join us this May Day to contribute and share about this campaign to redistribute critical funds to our community. We invite you to contribute if you have the ability and invite your network to become a partner in this project. Solidarity to workers in Santa Fe and around the world! Thank you to everyone for your hard work on local efforts and persistence in demanding equity & justice!

#ShareMyCheck Re-launch!

REPORT: EVICTIONS IN THE COVID-19 ERA: Successes & limitations of moratoria to keep people housed and healthy in Santa Fe

Check out this brand new research on the successes and limitations of COVID-19 era eviction moratoria – ordinances meant to temporarily protect tenants from being evicted by landlords during the pandemic. In this brief, we elucidate how and why eviction filings have continued to impact Santa Fe renters inequitably in 2020 despite moratoria, with a comparative analysis of eviction filings data from prior years.


This brief is the second in a series of three created by HIP & Chainbreaker Collective.
