We created multiple ways for organizations to participate in this advocacy with options for those with limited capacity and those with more resources.
Our goal was to generatepublic comments. By the end of the options and pif comment period, more thanpeople and organizations submitted comments — the overwhelming majority of which opposed this proposal. This was only possible through our diverse coalition of partners and hard working advocates from all over the country engaging in unique ways with their communities.
Partnering with Diverse Coalitions — PIF partners empowered communities through story options and pif, brought in new diverse partners and community leaders, reached across the aisle, and engaged grassroots community organizers. Working with Service Providers on Public Charge — PIF partners trained advocates, providers and community members, developed screening tools and educated enrollment workers, held webinars, and engaged community leaders to speak with state health organizations.
