Prevent the Repeal of the Affordable Care Act
Although currently the Senate has not been able to agree on a new healthcare bill, it is important to realize the dramatic changes that a GOP healthcare bill would result in. We encourage everyone to read up on the AHCA and the Senate's healthcare bill the BCRA. To voice your opinion, call your legislator’s phone number by using the searchable directory at or call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202)224-3121 and ask for your legislator’s office. To see more of this chart, created by our Advocacy Chair Yasamin Vafai, including how the change can affect women, keep a look out for a future email.
