New: Protecting Abortion Access
PIF partners National Immigration Law Center, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice, and All* Above All recently partnered on an abortion access series. The infographics they created highlight the specific and severe barriers immigrants face in accessing abortion care, and the immediate need for our elected officials to protect and expand access to abortion for ALL.

Research: Pandemic Changes in Food Insecurity & Immigrant/Mixed Status Families
PIF partner Children's HealthWatch recently published a paper on the differing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigrant and mixed-status families. Their research found that families of young children with immigrant mothers experienced greater increases in food insecurity and being behind on rent than those with US-born mothers during the pandemic.
