Watch the Webinar

Bet Tzedek’s partners at Justice in Aging worked with the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) to present a training on public charge to advocates for older adults. The webinar offered an overview of the existing public charge rule and key proposed changes, including the addition of certain government benefits older adults rely on, and details on how immigration officials make the public charge determination. Watch the webinar for tips on how you should be counseling your older adult clients and what you can do to fight back against this harmful proposal.
