CCESO Care Workers Connections Education and Support Organization Joins:
August 23, 2020 across the country calling for urgent action for Status for All! Parliament may be prorogued, but migrants are still in crisis. Migrant and undocumented people are coming together to make it loud and clear: We need FULL & PERMANENT IMMIGRATION STATUS FOR ALL - migrants, refugees, undocumented, students, workers, homeless, criminalized, sex workers, families.
The federal government has created a regularization program for some refugees, but too many are left behind. We are all essential. For too long, those of us without permanent resident status have been unable to get universal services, or speak back against bad bosses. COVID-19 has exacerbated our crisis. We have lost lives and livelihoods. We need a single-tier society where everyone in the country has the same rights and opportunities, and that means full and permanent immigration status for all. No more racism, no more deaths, no more exploitation, STATUS FOR ALL NOW!
