Update: October 11, 2019

Federal courts stop the public charge rule!  The Center for Public Representation celebrates the nationwide preliminary injunctions issued today by federal courts in New York (which can be read here and here), Washington state, and Maryland preventing the Administration from implementing its cruel and discriminatory public charge rule and finding the rule could discriminate against people with disabilities.  These decisions are a clear victory for disabled immigrants and their families.  In addition, federal courts in California and Illinois issued limited preliminary injunctions, preventing the rule from going into effect in the plaintiff states.  Read our full statement here and for the latest updates on all of the ongoing litigation, please visit us here.  

Our Mission

10 million people with disabilities rely on Medicaid to live and participate in their communities. Over the past year, Congress attempted, and failed, to pass several different healthcare bills with devastating cuts to Medicaid.  But the fight is not over. Congress may try again to pass significant cuts to Medicaid, whether through the budget or in another healthcare or tax bill.  Federal agencies are also proposing policies that hurt people with disabilities who rely on Medicaid.  We need to continue to educate government leaders about the importance of Medicaid to the lives of people with disabilities.

Our purpose on this website is to help people with disabilities, their families, and advocates/allies understand the impact of the changes proposed by Congress and federal agencies and give them the tools to advocate.

Please contact us if you have questions, suggestions, or additional resources you'd like to see included.
