Take Action Now, The Nation: How You Can Fight to Save Our Health Care

Take Action Now

Take Action Now gives you three meaningful actions you can take each week—whatever your schedule. While we normally send actions on a variety of topics, this week is a bit different: it’s all about health care. Until it is defeated for good, we cannot afford to slow down our fight against a bill that would cause 22 million people to lose their insurance.

Here’s what you can do:

NO TIME TO WASTE?

Keep calling your senators to demand that they reject the Republican’s “health care” bill. This time around, ask specifically for the legislative assistant handling health care. Indivisible has a good guide that lists names and contact information, along with data on how the bill would likely impact your state. After you call, take a few minutes to contact friends and family in key states with Republicans on the fence about the bill and urge them to do the same.

GOT SOME TIME?

Join the Working Families Party’s Text4Resistance team and help get people out to defeat the Republican’s cruel health care bill and the rest of their agenda. “Texters” send personalized text messages to spread the word about events, collect responses to survey questions, or get out key information. You can sign up to be part of the team here. WFP will be in touch for a quick training and next steps.

READY TO DIG IN?

Go to Washington, DC to fight for our health care. This is an emergency. If you can, make every effort to get to DC. Opponents of the bill will gather at the Capitol for the “People’s Filibuster” beginning tonight until Thursday. On Wednesday night, groups including Planned Parenthood Action Fund and MoveOn.org will be organizing a human chain around the building. If you can’t make it to DC, there are events planned for West Virginia by MomsRising (details here and here), as well as Indivisible groups organizing across the country.
