Public charge. Discrimination in the workplace. Experiences with law enforcement. How are Latinx and Asian immigrants in California faring under state and federal immigration policy?

The RIGHTS (Research on Immigrant Health and State Policy) Study was developed by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research (CHPR) to understand the experiences of Asian and Latinx immigrants in California as they seek health care, go to work and school, and engage in their communities.

Join RIGHTS investigators as they share findings from four studies on Asian and Latinx immigrants’ experiences with a range of public policies that influence health — from health care to labor protections to immigration enforcement. Presenters will discuss how the intersecting experiences of policies are a critical social determinant of health for Asian and Latinx immigrants.
