Health Care Rally
Tuesday, June 27, at 5:30 p.m.
Ohio Statehouse, High Street Sidewalk
1 Capitol Square
WHAT HEALTH CARE? CONTACT SENATOR PORTMAN AND SENATOR BROWN
and Call your senators at 866-426-2631 and tell them to Stop the repeal of the Affordable Care Act!
If it passes the Senate:
- 24 million Americans will lose coverage by 2020
- Costs will increase for seniors and those with pre-existing conditions
- Women will go back to paying more than men for basic care
- Women will lose access to safe abortion care and see increases in costs for birth control
- Medicaid patients – including millions of children, seniors and people with disabilities – will no longer be able to get the care they need
In fact, the only real winners under this new legislation are the big interests, the wealthiest Americans and Political Action Committees.
Even if you’ve already called your Senator – call them again! Every day! 866-426-2631
Tell the Senate that Americans can’t afford to lose our healthcare coverage.
NOW President’s Final Letter to Friends
This summer marks the end of my term as president of the National Organization for Women.
In less than a week, activists from around the country will gather in Orlando, Fla. to elect NOW’s next president and vice president at our annual conference. As I get ready for this historic conference, I’ve been reflecting a lot on my time as president–and I want to say thank you.
I am so grateful for the fierce, enduring support of our grassroots activists. Every gain we have made–since NOW’s founding more than 50 years ago–has been a direct result of the hard work of feminists like you.
I am humbled by your dedication, and I know you’ll keep fighting for women’s rights even as we face immense challenges ahead. Because if there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s this: the future is female.
I have one last favor to ask before I go. As I prepare to pass the torch to NOW’s next president, I want to leave her with some words of wisdom–advice directly from our amazing grassroots activists.
