PFIR Becoming Institute For Sound Public Policy — Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR) announced its name change to the Institute for Sound Public Policy (IfSPP), Feb. 34. The new name signals the organization’s broader vision and expanded mission to advocate for national policies that prioritize the security and well-being of U.S. citizens in a world where roughly 5 billion people live on less than $10 per day.
“2023 marks a sea change. Our repositioning as the Institute for Sound Public Policy will enable us to reach out and earn the moral and financial support of those who feel the pressures of the global billions.” said Kevin Lynn, executive director of the Institute for Sound Public Policy.
“For the past 15 years Progressives for Immigration Reform has identified numerous ways in which the inadequacy and abuse of immigration policy has destroyed livelihoods and diminished the overall quality of life in the U.S. Today as the Institute for Sound Public Policy we expand beyond the adverse effects of unbridled human capital to address other essential factors and the root cause crippling our nation: globalist policies and neoliberal ideologies that pursue the unrestricted flow of capital, goods, and people.”
Progressives for Immigration Reform will immediately brand itself as the Institute for Sound Public Policy with a new logo, and a new website to be announced mid-March 2023.
It’s existing entities, U.S. Tech Workers, Doctors without Jobs, and Our Carbon Footprint will now operate under The Project for Immigration Reform, a supporting organization to the Institute for Sound Public Policy. The entities will continue to bring attention to the abuse of U.S. employment visa programs, the inequities in the U.S.’ medical residency matching program, and the impact of immigration-fueled population growth on the environment.
During the name change process, the organization’s legal name will remain Progressives for Immigration Reform.
