In The News

On Jan. 27, Trump signed an executive order that would restrict the admission of certain foreign nationals and refugees to the United States under the guise of protecting the nation from foreign terrorists. The Colorado Public Health Association is dedicated to promoting a diverse and culturally inclusive membership, and we have serious concerns about the impacts of the President’s recent actions. CPHA unequivocally believes that our state and country are greatly enriched by the diverse perspectives and experiences of all Coloradans, and CPHA is strongly committed to the inclusion of all of its members.

As stated by APHA, CPHA is also deeply concerned that this executive order will “reduce US science and engineering output by discouraging the best and brightest international students, scholars, and scientists from studying and working, attending academic and scientific conferences, or seeking to build new business in the United States.”

We will continue to welcome all members and also highly encourage everyone to join CPHA in showing our solidarity in the following ways:

  • Protect Our Muslim Neighbors Rally: TOMORROW, February 4 from 1 pm – 4 pm at Civic Center Park
    • Learn more about the Rally here
  • Join the Community for Unity Group
  • Send a letter urging the administration to rescind the executive order
  • Defend Our Constitution March: February 18 from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm at Civic Center Park
  • Immigration and Citizenship Workshops at Denver Public Libraries, February-April
  • Know Your Rights Immigration Presentation: Tuesday, February 7, 5:30-7 pm at the
    Dahlia Campus
    for Health and Well-Being, Mental Health Center of Denver 3401 N Eudora St. Denver, CO 80207                                         

We also encourage any student members who may have questions or concerns regarding student visas to seek information and counsel from your campus Office of International Student and Scholar Services.

We will continue to monitor these national discussions and will keep the CPHA community informed of important developments as they unfold. Thank you all for your ongoing commitment to CPHA and these critical issues.
