Dear fellow EU citizen,
Today, I just want to send a #BigHug to you and to everyone who feels a little bit scared after the results of the election.
We, EU citizens in the UK, alongside with our partners, family members, friends and colleagues, are worrying about our future after Brexit but please be reassured the3million will continue to fight for you to be able to live, love and work in the UK as now.
We will also continue to work hand in hand with British in Europe, united in the same plight to protect our lives in the countries we love and make sure no-one is left behind because of Brexit
In 2020, we will have a special focus on holding the Government to account. The only good news today is the Withdrawal Agreement will soon be ratified, meaning some of our rights will be enshrined in a treaty. If the Home Office acts unlawfully in regards to Settled Status or any of our rights, we will have to seek protection from courts.
To do that, we need your support to raise enough funds to permanently establish our legal team with Luke Piper, our legal counsel.
We need raise £10,000 by the end of December to do so so please donate to our Crowdjustice page at https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/eu-citizens/
All funds will be used to seek the protection of our citizens’ rights in courts and fight discrimination after Brexit under this Government 💪
