Please Give: Matching Pledge Drive

This year we have a special opportunity. A long-time member has pledged to match the total we are able to raise this year with a donation of up to $50,000. He pledges to do this for the next 5 years.

“I see that NMASS is doing what few groups dare to do–give workers a fighting chance to have a livelihood, to have a life, instead of being reduced to victims begging not to be deported or evicted.”

Please help us meet this target this year! The more NMASS can become a truly self-sustaining grassroots organization, the more we can  build our organizing.
