EU citizens who made the UK their home are neighbours, colleagues, friends, and family. They are doctors, teachers, and hairdressers. Yet despite promises by Leave campaigners and consecutive governments, Brexit has had a significant impact on their lives, from a rise in hate crimes directed at them to the uncertainty about their future rights which — contrary to the UK government’s claims — have not been fully secured. While many have secured a status under the EU Settlement Scheme, hundreds of thousands are at risk of becoming unlawful if they do not apply in time. Given that many who need to apply do not even know about the scheme, the risk of this happening is high.

EU citizens should be able to live their lives as before. You and your backing of this campaign can make a critical contribution to enabling this.

Become an EU Citizens’ Champion

Please note: we are currently exploring fundraising platform options as the one we had used has closed.

If you choose to become an EU Citizens’ Champion by making a donation, you are choosing to support the3million, the UK’s leading not for profit organisation working to protect EU citizens’ rights. To learn a little more about the3million, watch the video below.

This is why this campaign is asking for your support.

Now that Brexit has happened, the task lying ahead remains enormous and EU citizens need your help so that they do not become the victims of bureaucracy, and do not end up being a new Windrush generation. With a donation in support of the3million, you are making a vital contribution to secure the future of millions of EU citizens already at home in the UK.
