New York, NY-Today, the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) published a comprehensive multilingual resource page providing accurate information on the resources immigrant New Yorkers need to know during the COVID-19 crisis. The community resources will be updated daily at 9 AM each weekday and include information about how our undocumented community members can access health insurance now; updates from the Department of Education concerning school meals and remote learning; news about immigration court closures; the moratorium on evictions, and more. The resource page is available in English, Spanish, Korean, Arabic, Haitian Creole, Mandarin, and Bengali.
The NYIC is continuing to fight for the inclusion of immigrant New Yorkers in the response planning to COVID-19 happening in Albany and at City Hall right now. Earlier this week, NYIC unveiled the NY United campaign, which calls on federal, state, and local officials to implement common-sense policy and budget proposals to ensure that New York’s immigrants are protected and empowered during this crisis.
