Right now, immigrants across the country are facing xenophobia, fears of deportation, and ICE raids. These raids are breaking apart families, deporting undocumented individuals who have been in the U.S many years and who are an important part of the U.S labor force. The restaurant industry itself employs 1.1 million undocumented immigrants, and 52% of all restaurant workers are women.
NOW’s Action Agenda:
- Pursue a collaborative relationship with Sanctuary Restaurants and encourage our NOW activist network to take action in their local communities.
