September 2021 Federal Advocacy Opportunities
There are three important ways to advocate for immigrants this September. Contact your Representative or Senator and tell them to:
- Ask them to waive the ~$600 per person fees attached to humanitarian parole applications for Afghans and other refugees fleeing war today. Learn more here.
- Support the LIFT the BAR Act. This will remove cruel, xenophobic, and harmful barriers to federal public benefits for immigrants, and provide critical support programs to all lawfully-present immigrants. It would restore access to federal public benefits for lawfully present immigrants, eliminate the five-year bar on Medicaid, CHIP, SSI, SNAP, and TANF, and remove additional arbitrary barriers.

- Support the path towards citizenship for millions of immigrants that is currently included in the Democrats budget reconciliation act. Learn more here.
