About WashMasks Mutual Aid

Migrant workers are essential workers who are exposed to high-risk conditions due to lack of PPE masks being made available to them. Every meal we eat is made possible by farm workers who work regardless of heat, cold, rain, snow, and now a pandemic.

This mutual aid initiative consists of classroom teachers, public school administrators, and arts educators from across Washington state, who are on a mission to collect and distribute masks for the migrant communities we work within and care deeply about. We believe that this community deserves support, dignity, and advocacy.
