I feel welcome in Arise — and you will, too

Guest post by Ana Delia Valeriano.

My name is Ana Delia Valeriano. I’m proud to serve on Alabama Arise’s board of directors and to count myself as an Arise member and supporter. I’m writing today to thank you for your support, and to let you know that you can double your impact when you give by Dec. 31.

I personally support Arise because my family and I feel welcomed as part of the membership. And I’d like to take this time to ask for your support for our year-end campaign. Please make a contribution to support Arise’s work today. If you’ve already given during our year-end campaign, I thank you and ask you to share this message with friends.

Our family can give our annual gift knowing that the return will affect us directly, along with many other Latinxs helped by the work Arise does. We give because Medicaid expansion, public transportation and all the other issues that Arise’s membership votes on help us work toward an Alabama that is just, with policies that improve the lives of families with low incomes.

Your support for Arise will allow us to continue promoting productive changes for all Alabamians – including me and my family.  Please make a contribution to support Arise’s work today.

I’m thankful for the support Arise has received this year. And I wanted to let you know about three grants Arise has received to fund important work in 2020. One will encourage higher participation in the 2020 Census, one will engage directly impacted people in Medicaid reform, and one will promote Medicaid expansion.

These grants all require matching funds. That means you can double your impact with a contribution today. All member donations up to $75,000 will be matched dollar for dollar if received by Dec. 31!
