1 Further Weakening of Healthcare System
Last week, President Trump signed two executive orders intended to dismantle our healthcare system, denying millions of Americans affordable access to comprehensive healthcare coverage. The first allows insurers to provide plans that gut essential health benefits like maternity care and substance abuse. The second order will result in a drastic increase in premiums for individuals and families. Call your Senators now to stand up against attacks on our country's health.
And for you...
Women and men have come together using #MeToo on Twitter and Facebook, raising awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment. The importance of this campaign is to acknowledge and validate these stories without questioning experiences or victim blaming. For those who have posted and those who don’t feel comfortable sharing, we support and stand with you in this fight.
