Immediate Action Needed!

Urge Congress to Abandon the American Health Care Act

It is now clear that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) is back, and even worse than before. Congress will be in recess April 10-21. This means Members of Congress will be at home in their states/districts. The bottom line is they need to hear from you.

We know that calls, sharing personal stories, showing up at Town hall meetings, work—remind them that the ACA and Medicaid are essential to people with disabilities and their families. The failure of the House of Representatives to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA) showed the incredible power of grassroots activism, but the threats are now even greater.
