Take Action and save cultural exchange!

According to multiple sources, including this Wall Street Journal article, we now know that the Trump Administration is planning to eliminate five valuable J-1 programs: Summer Work Travel, Intern, Trainee, Camp Counselor, and Au Pair.  This action may be taken as soon as early September. We believe this is a grave mistake—elimination of these programs would have a devastating impact on all of our businesses, our families, and our communities.
