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.
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.
