The OE is part of every Kiwi's culture that they want to defend the right to.

Want to know what you can do to help convince the White House Administration that the J1 Cultural Exchange J1 visa is not a threat to Americans but a vital piece of the tapestry that makes up the culture of USA and International countries?

 

We have collected some links for you.

ACA Camps petition to the White House (use your Camp or Host Family address as it needs a US Postcode and address)

Save the Au Pair J1 Change.org petition (sign with Facebook in 30 seconds)

As you may have heard, there are multiple reports in the Wall Street Journal and from others that senior White House officials are considering eliminating the Summer Work Travel, Intern/Trainee, Camp Counselor, and Au Pair programs as part of the implementation of the Buy American, Hire American (BAHA) Executive Order. We are working with the Alliance for International Exchange and others as part of the Save J1 Campaign, which includes grassroots advocacy, legislative action, and media engagement.

 

You, as the exchange participants, partners, and agents, can play a very important role in the Campaign by contacting your country’s Ambassador to the U.S, sharing your stories, and engaging in social media.

 

Contact the NZ Ambassador to the U.S.

The most powerful international voice on this issue is NZ's Ambassador to the United States. Ask Tim Groser @NZAmbassadorUS to contact the Department of State and share how important these programs are to your country. We have put together this draft letter from you to your ambassador. Please personalise your letter before you send it.
