NEXT WEEK: Come Out and Support Health Care!

There is a lot going on next week, especially in response to the new bill proposed in Washington to repeal the Affordable Care Act which would strip health care coverage from millions of people and make severe cuts to Medicaid. We hope you can join us for any or all of the following events on Monday and Tuesday!

Protect Access to Healthcare

Email your Congressperson to protect healthcare and vote against the Cassidy-Graham Affordable Care Act Repeal Bill! There are two critical efforts underway that need your attention.

This week we went to Washington, along with thousands from across the country, to tell Congress to protect Medicaid and increase funding for homeless services.
Tell Your US Senators to Protect Medicaid!

Congress is considering unfair changes that will leave hundreds of millions without healthcare. Medicaid is at most risk in these negotiations. It is critical, now more than ever, that our voices are heard, and that our legislators know we pay attention and we care about our healthcare.

 

Affordable housing matters to all of us. Every person has a story of coming home, staying home, or losing home. And losing home is one of the hardest stories of all. In today's political climate, affordable housing has been treated as a luxury rather than a human right and important part of dignity and self-worth. The need for affordable housing in Philadelphia is tremendous and growing every day. Share your story of why affordable housing matters to you by clicking the Share My Story button on this page.

Are you concerned about the proposed Federal Budget’s impact on people in your community?
