Lemma 100.27.14. Let $f_ j : \mathcal{X}_ j \to \mathcal{X}$, $j \in J$ be a family of morphisms of algebraic stacks which are each flat and locally of finite presentation and which are jointly surjective, i.e., $|\mathcal{X}| = \bigcup |f_ j|(|\mathcal{X}_ j|)$. Then for every scheme $U$ and object $x$ of $\mathcal{X}$ over $U$ there exists an fppf covering $\{ U_ i \to U\} _{i \in I}$, a map $a : I \to J$, and objects $x_ i$ of $\mathcal{X}_{a(i)}$ over $U_ i$ such that $f_{a(i)}(x_ i) \cong y|_{U_ i}$ in $\mathcal{X}_{U_ i}$.

**Proof.**
Apply Lemma 100.27.13 to the morphism $\coprod _{j \in J} \mathcal{X}_ j \to \mathcal{X}$. (There is a slight set theoretic issue here – due to our setup of things – which we ignore.) To finish, note that a morphism $x_ i : U_ i \to \coprod _{j \in J} \mathcal{X}_ j$ is given by a disjoint union decomposition $U_ i = \coprod U_{i, j}$ and morphisms $U_{i, j} \to \mathcal{X}_ j$. Then the fppf covering $\{ U_{i, j} \to U\} $ and the morphisms $U_{i, j} \to \mathcal{X}_ j$ do the job.
$\square$
