Submit a comment opposing Trump’s latest attack on immigrant families by Monday, 12/10

At our last SFCCPA Community meeting — bringing a little of the NAEYC conference to SF — we announced a First 5 SF collaboration with NAEYC and the NAEYC Asian Interest Forum. The event will be this Friday morning. See details and register below. 

Our October SFCCPA Community meeting focused on being prepared in your community and at your site to support immigrants, as well as the Trump Administration's Public Charge proposals, broadening the programs considered in the determination. See more information here on Public Charge. Please see the National Immigration Law Center request below. Take action on this important issue — submit your comments today.

Thanks for all you do for San Francisco’s children and families.

6 days left! Submit a comment before the deadline

There’s 6 days left to submit a comment opposing Trump’s latest attack on immigrant families.
If finalized, this regulation that would force immigrants to make the heartbreaking decision between providing for their families and having a permanent future in the United States.
But the Trump administration is required, by law, to review each unique comment that they receive. Submit a comment before December 10 to help stop this cruel rule >>>

You have 6 DAYS LEFT to fight back and submit a comment. ACT NOW to #ProtectFamilies >>>
Let’s stand together to protect immigrants and their families because when Trump harms immigrants, he harms all communities.
Thank you,
