Mary’s Center has created a legislative toolkit focused on immigrant health care issues. The kit is designed to provide federal, state, and local legislators with a variety of immigrant health care facts and figures as well as raise awareness about the impact of health policies on immigrant families. The toolkit also highlights model legislation that addresses access to community-based health services and the unique health care needs of immigrants. To view our Legislative Toolkit, click here.
