Take Action Today! Thank U.S. Senators for Their Continued Efforts to Protect Survivors’ Health Care

Post

Yesterday, the Senate voted to proceed in debating health care legislation this week. Lawmakers in Congress who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are relying on the Senate to pass health care legislation this week, so the House and Senate can come to a compromise and get an ACA repeal and replace bill enacted into law. Over the next few days, the Senate will debate a number of proposals and vote.

Take Action

Contact our U.S. Senators thank them for their continued efforts to protect survivors’ health care and express the importance of having accessible and quality health care services, especially for the millions of survivors of sexual and domestic violence who live in California and throughout the United States. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris need to hear from you about your opposition to any health care legislation that would take health insurance away from millions of survivors. Please call Senator Feinstein’s office at (202) 224-3841 and Senator Harris’ office at (202) 224-3553 today.  

Sample call script:
Hello, my name is (name)  from (organization) in (city) and I’m calling to thank the Senator for her continued efforts to protect the health care of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. I also urge the Senator to oppose any health care legislation that would leave millions of survivors without health care access, cut Medicaid, and remove requirements around pre-existing conditions and essential health benefits. Thank you.”
