FIAT: Help for the Undocumented
The tragedy of recent wildfires has hit our undocumented immigrant community especially hard. Ineligible for any aid from FEMA, and prey to skyrocketing rents for replacement housing, these families who are vital to our community, need our help. The UndocuFund was started by three local nonprofits. 100% of donations go to help undocumented fire victims with lost wages, short term rental assistance/security deposits and more. More info and how to donate is available at their website.
