Know Your Rights! Facts on health & nutrition for immigrants
The Protecting Immigrant Families (PIF) Campaign is dedicated to protecting immigrants and their families’ access to health care, nutrition programs, public services and economic supports. This month we’ve published three new community education resources to give communities the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
These documents were created and reviewed by a dedicated team of providers and advocates from all over the United States. We encourage advocates from all backgrounds to help us share these resources – you never know who may need to see them! Below is a brief description of these resources and translations are available in many more languages at our website.
