Pack the Court Oct 2 Flyer (1).png



Unite as #OneNation at the US District Court in Oakland to send a loud and clear message to the judge that our communities are against this rule.

This is a critical hearing and if the judge grants an injunction, this would mean the final rule slated for October 15th will not be implemented.

Join One Nation and coalition members in standing up with our immigrant communities against the final public charge rule which is expected to go into effect on October 15, 2019. The rule will harm 26 million Americans and force families to either forgo healthcare, food, and housing assistance, or possibly face separation and deportation.

Flyers available in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese.


A hub of strategic leadership to defeat the proposed Public Charge rule and shift the narrative on immigration in America.

The One Nation Commission will issue expert recommendations and reports on the impacts and potential impacts of Public Charge in the AAPI community.

This will be a time-limited Commission of approximately six months to one year. We intend to be flexible and nimble enough to have rapid response capabilities to keep relevant within the national changing body politic. The Commission is fully staffed with policy, research, and communications experts and currently funded by the East Bay Community Foundation and Asian Health Services.


➤ Next Steps

We expect to issue our first report in early fall 2019.

Our Work and Impact

The immediate focus of the One Nation Commission is to shut down the proposed federal Public Charge rule, and support the legal and policy battles, producing data, reports, stories, and media that further substantiate our position and shape the narrative that immigrants are a net benefit to society.



Provide strategies, expertise, and support to limit or end Public Charge as a policy.


Monitor, document, report, hold public hearings, gather existing data and information and cull new data and information when appropriate.


Legal & Policy

Lead and inform the public discourse both in and about the AAPI community and broader immigrant rights community.


Issue expert recommendations and reports on the impacts and potential impacts of Public Charge in the AAPI community.


Narrative Shift

Shift the narrative: from immigrants being a burden to, “This nation was built on the strength of immigrants.”

Movement Building

Strengthen the One Nation AAPI movement.
