In 2020, workers who were denied pandemic relief and access to unemployment benefits faced an uphill battle in their campaign to win economic relief. The Fund Excluded Workers (FEW) Coalition, co-founded by Make the Road NY and partners, brought the moral crisis of exclusion to the forefront.
In 2021, workers made history and put $15,000 in the pockets of families who needed it most. In 2022, hundreds of excluded workers called for a permanent safety net–access to unemployment benefits when needed, just like the rest of the labor force.
Until we win – excluded workers will always be in crisis. With your support, we can pass just and sustainable solutions.
This documentary honors the movement’s victories, and sends an undeniable message to Governor Hochul and the state legislature: our labor has value, we will fight until we’re excluded no more.
