Health & Public Benefits


We believe that no one should suffer or die from a treatable condition. We believe in supporting Californians with what they need to stay healthy. However, when local, state, and federal health programs are threatened, this puts the well-being of California’s immigrant communities at risk. By working with coalitions of advocates, state departments, stakeholders, and community members, CIPC has helped champion policies on health and human services. Together we can uplift the principle that health is a human right.
