The Brigham community is invited to attend a Rally Against Public Charge to show support for our patients, employees and immigrant families in Boston and throughout the U.S. who could potentially be affected by proposed changes to the federal public charge policy. You can learn more about the proposal here.

At the Brigham, we embrace a culture of shared humanity and dignity, and we take pride in being an institution where everyone is welcome, regardless of immigration status. As such, we strongly oppose the proposed changes.

The rally is Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 10 a.m., in the Fish Rotunda at 15 Francis St. It is expected to last 20 minutes. During the event, monarch butterfly stickers will be distributed to staff and visitors who attend. The monarch butterfly is a symbol of how migration is dignified.

As this is considered a public health issue, clinicians are encouraged to wear their white coats.
