Tell President Biden: Eliminate the Public Charge Rule Now!

As more of our neighbors face hunger at the hands of this pandemic, leadership must act urgently to support every single person who doesn't have enough to eat. Rescinding the Public Charge rule is one step toward ensuring all families can get food on their tables – and it's something President Biden can begin to do today.

Under the Public Charge rule, making use of certain assistance benefits, including SNAP benefits, can negatively impact individuals seeking pathways to citizenship in the United States. Many families across the country live in mixed-status households -- or households with members with different citizenship and immigration statuses -- and the Public Charge rule has forced many to choose between staying together with loved ones or putting food on the table. No family should be made afraid of accessing much-needed food support.

We need to make sure solving hunger for all is a top priority for our new President - and you can take action now. Add your name to urge President Biden to eliminate the Public Charge rule. Together, we can work to make sure no child, parent, or family ever has to worry about where their next meal will come from. What you do matters, and you can help solve hunger today.
