Join advocates around the country on June 26 for a Day of Action to Keep Families Together to oppose HUD’s cruel proposal to evict 25,000 mixed-status immigrant families, including 55,000 children who are U.S. citizens or have legal status.
Individuals and organizations are invited to host comment parties on June 26 to voice their opposition to HUD’s proposal and encourage participants to submit comments by the July 9 deadline. Advocates around the country have already submitted more than 5,000 comments in opposition to the rule, and we need your help to generate even more! A comment party allows people with limited access to the internet an opportunity to make their voices heard.
As part of the day, Representative Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) will join NLIHC, the National Housing Law Project (NHLP), and other national leaders for a webinar on the rule at 2:00 p.m. ET on July 9. Representative Garcia has helped lead the fight against the proposed rule in Congress, introducing the “Keeping Families Together Act of 2019.” This bill to block HUD from implementing the rule recently passed out of the House Financial Services Committee.
To help you get started, NLIHC and NHLP created a Comment Party Planning Toolkit with tips and resources to plan a successful comment party. Other materials – including a new Myth vs. Fact factsheet, a Spanish language commenting portal and fact sheet, a social media toolkit, and more – are available at the campaign website – www.Keep-Families-Together.org.
