Emergency Hospitality Worker’s Relief Fund

The COVID-19 Crisis has struck hospitality industry workers with great force.  Many have had their hours reduced, and tens and thousands of workers have been laid off, leaving many low-wage workers wondering how they will make ends meet. This includes workers in hotels, stadiums, amusement parks, universities, airport concessions, catering companies, and airline food kitchens. Not all workers are eligible to apply for unemployment – and many immigrant workers who are especially vulnerable have very few allies to turn to for relief.

Today, our sisters and brothers in the hospitality industry are hurting in deep and real ways, and we call on you once again to stand shoulder to shoulder as we seek to share the burden. Our friends at Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) have created a Emergency Hospitality Worker Hardship Fund to help hospitality workers during these difficult times. We encourage you to give as generously as you are able to this Fund which will assist hospitality workers and their families who are unable to access unemployment.
