Alumna Jenny Rejeske was recently quoted in the New York Times. In response to the Obama administration’s announcement that it planned to terminate health insurance for 115,000 people on Oct. 1 because they had failed to prove that they were United States citizens or legal immigrants eligible for coverage under the Affordable Care Act, Jenny said, “It is unduly harsh to terminate coverage while there are still technical problems with the federal system for verifying citizenship and immigration status. And there has not been adequate notice to people who speak languages other than English and Spanish.”
Jenny graduated from the Nonprofit Management program in 2008. She currently works as a health policy analyst at the National Immigration Law Center.
