COVID-19 Access & Equity
The fight against COVID-19 continues–
EVERYONE should have access to the vaccine.
ACIJ has worked throughout the pandemic for equitable COVID-19 vaccine access and language justice. In early 2020, the ACIJ Leadership Council Rapid Response committee and staff compiled a list of resources by county for support with COVID testing, food distribution, and utility assistance. In early April, we launched a bilingual hotline to provide this information to callers statewide. Our committee also fundraised over $25,000 to provide grants to undocumented individuals and families in need of financial assistance.
The ACIJ Community Aid Fund is now closed! Thanks to the support of community leaders and allies, we distributed over $120,000 to 300 immigrant families left out of federal relief.
