Lobby Your Senators on Health Care

June 5, 2017


The Senate is making critical choices on healthcare right now. The biggest impact you can have is meeting directly with a member of Congress or their staff. Take action to protect Medicaid, a critical, lifesaving program under threat in current legislation.

In this moment, we need you to act now more than ever. The future of Medicaid and the millions of people who rely on it hang in the balance.

  1. Download and print this handout
  2. Get more details for Alaska, Nevada, West Virginia, Maine, Ohio OR Enter your zip code to see the closest offices.
  3. Stop by the office and say something like this:

    Hi, my name is [NAME], and I'm a constituent from [CITY, STATE].

    I'm stopping by to say that I’m concerned about the Senate health care bill. I urge the senator to oppose any legislation that caps Medicaid or rolls back the Medicaid expansion. Could you pass this document along to the right staff member for me and ask them to let me know your office's position? Can you give me the contact information of the staffer who works on this policy in DC?
