Our community needs access to healthcare!  That’s what 71 community, labor, professional, and healthcare provider organizations united in the Health Care Is a Human Right Campaign told Congress together in a joint letter to our delegation.  We’re coming together because the ACA, Medicaid, and Medicare impact all of us– and we can’t just stand by while Congress plays political football with our patients’ lives.

Read the letter here.

We’re reaching out to our Members of Congress now to meet with them and tell them our stories about why the ACA, Medicaid, and Medicare is critical to keeping access to life-saving care.  Learn more at our next Campaign meeting on February 8!
