On March 12, 2020, we sent all of our students home and suspended in-person classes. I never could have imagined that we’d still be relying on online classes one year later. Thanks to the support of people like you, our students have barely missed a day of classes.
Andrea is one of our online students from Brazil. She works for the U.S. Postal Service. Those postal workers who kept the mail coming last year all seem like heroes to me, but you were Andrea’s hero. Being an essential worker in the middle of a pandemic isn’t easy. Not knowing enough English to communicate with your coworkers makes it even harder. With your support, Andrea was able to improve her English in The ILC classes, and she says, “Now I know very much.”
In honor of immigrant essential workers like Andrea, The Immigrant Learning Center will be hosting a virtual Immigrant Heroes Award Benefit on Tuesday, April 6 at 5:30 PM EDT.
In addition to sharing stories like Andrea’s, we will be honoring immigrants who have founded a not-for-profit, enabled cheaper, faster COVID-19 testing, and rose to the challenge of 2020 in many other ways.
I hope to “see” you there.
