Thank you so much to our Day Labor Outreach coordinator Osvaldo and to Tanya for supporting 51 day laborers this past weekend! They were able to visit two locations and responsibly distribute care packages including lunches, hand sanitizer, socks, and also some much needed moral support.
We are so grateful to their work and taking the time to put these packages together as we know that this pandemic has hit our day laborers especially hard. There is a low demand for work, and we have seen a significant drop in the amount of them waiting for day jobs. Day laborers’ source of income has suffered greatly with the reduction of traffic throughout home improvement stores, and throughout the county in general. We continue to try to find the best ways to support them wether it be through free remote legal clinics, or finding the most useful items to donate to them. Thanks to Osvaldo’s work on the field, we are able to better cater to the needs of our community, and they know that we will continue to adapt and find ways to better support our day laborers. We thank him for always approaching this community with care and respect, as well as advocating for the needs of a community so beloved to us.
