HELP THE OSEGUERA 2020 CAMPAIGN HIRE FREELANCE WORKERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19 SLOWDOWNS

Hector Oseguera - born in Hoboken and raised in West New York, - is a proud product of Hudson County’s public schools, from his humble beginnings at Head Start to his diploma from High Tech High School. Hector’s mother emigrated from the Dominican Republic and raised him and his younger sister on her own while making ends meet. Her tenacity and determination eventually led to her earning a Masters in Education at New Jersey City University, setting an example for Hector that he would carry throughout his life.

Hector stands in solidarity with working class people and he recognizes that, in a post-2008 world, much of his generation has been relegated to uncertain careers of freelancing. As we now enter the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, freelance workers are especially vulnerable to internal budget cuts by their clients.

HOW CAN THE OSEGUERA CAMPAIGN HELP FREELANCE WORKERS?

The Oseguera 2020 campaign has committed a portion of existing campaign funds to immediately hire freelance workers affected by this economic slowdown. However, our campaign, fueled largely by small money donors, needs your help to truly make a difference in our community.

100% off all donations made on this page will go towards hiring freelance workers who's careers have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

WHAT WILL FREELANCERS DO AND HOW WILL THEY BE HIRED?

Graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, and other creative freelancers will be commissioned to create the social media content included in our campaign's effort to properly inform the residents of New Jersey's 8th district about COVID-19.

Freelancer workers in any appropriate field should feel free to contact our Communications Director, Brian Scully, at brian@oseguera2020.com. Please include a link to a portfolio or work samples, acceptable rates, as well as anything else you would like us to know.

Did you lose a gig due to the pandemic? Let us know how this is affecting you and we will do our best to respond accordingly.

    “I'm endorsing this campaign because NJ's 8th district is home to many freelance workers who have lost their income over the past week due to COVID-19. I'm a freelancer myself and thankfully was able to pay my bills this month, so it's the least I can do to help.”
