ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

 
 

The why... On October 10th, the Department of Homeland Security published a proposed public charge regulation intended to create a defacto legal wall to keep immigrants out and rig the system against children, elders, people who are lower income, limited English and those who have medical conditions or with disabilities.

The how... Aapis spoke out through more than 23,000 public comment submissions, of a record shattering total of 267,000 comments.

Building on the momentum from the engaging public comments campaign last fall — 

now come events and actions in Washington D.C. June 11th and 12th 2019:

Tuesday, June 11 — One Nation Commission meeting and One Nation Organizing Committee meeting for joint testimony and deliberations. National Press Club, Washington D.C.
