We were formed in 2017 to combat the racist and exclusionary Trump-era public charge policy and other harmful actions by the Trump administration. In March 2021, PIF was successful in persuading the federal government to take steps to rescind it.

PIF works to ensure that all of our families have access to the care and services they need to thrive.
