LIFT the BAR Act
Opened: May 9. Closing: TBA.
The Lifting Immigrant Families Through Benefits Access Restoration (LIFT the BAR Act) will soon be reintroduced in Congress. The legislation would repeal the arbitrary “5 Year Bar” and lower other barriers to health care, food security, and antipoverty programs for millions in immigrant families.
We plan to release an endorsement letter shortly after the bill is reintroduced, as a show of support for this landmark legislation. Our sign-on letter has been circulating for a few weeks and already has hundreds of signatories. Click here to check if your organization has already signed on.
Our aim is to secure more signatories this year than the 750 organizations endorsing the bill last year. If you have not yet signed on, please do. If you have, please encourage your network of partner organizations and coalitions to consider signing on.
