April 1 is Census Day of Action - Call Today!

(from our friends at the Keystone Counts Coalition)

Pennsylvania is at risk of an undercount in the 2020 Census, and this could mean a significant loss of federal funds for healthcare, nutrition assistance, transportation, housing, education, programs for children and parents, and much more! We can't afford to put these programs needlessly at risk. That's why Pennsylvania needs to take immediate action to prevent an undercount.

If you're concerned about about health care, nutrition assistance, transportation, housing, education, child welfare programs and more. tell lawmakers to support a public fund in the state budget to ensure a fair and accurate #2020Census.  Take action today!

Back in June 2018, the Administration said they would stop separating families who come to the US border. But in March, the New York Times reported that more than 200 children were removed from their families since the court ordered the practice to end. Parents and children are held in different facilities and even different states. Meanwhile, thousands of children separated from their parents before the court order took place still have not been reunited.

Take Action:
HIAS has an ongoing list of actions you can take, including contacting your legislators and confronting misinformation about refugeesWelcoming America, United We Dream, and MomsRising also have tools that can help.Public Charge: On October 10, the Department of Homeland Security issued a new change to the public charge rule, which looks at how using public benefits affects a person's application to become a legal p…
