Support the Affordable Care Act

Act now
Our Work

By most measures, the United States is a country of wealth and abundance. Yet, for many people, the U.S. economy isn’t working. In the richest country in the world, everyone should be able to eat three meals a day, have a roof over his or her head, and access health care. In addition, everyone should have opportunities to learn, work, and grow. A just economy is built on this foundation of economic stability and opportunity.

Action Alert Urgent Health Care Update 

On May 4, 2017, the House of Representatives voted to repeal key patient protections, end Medicaid as we know it, and eliminate coverage for 24 million people.
