  • National Wave of Action #StopTrumpCare
    8:00 am-9:30 am
    2017-07-06

    We’re mobilizing to stop the GOP healthcare bill in its tracks. On Thursday, July 6th—during the 4th of July recess when Senators return to their home states—there will be sit-ins at Senate offices across the country demanding Republican Senators vote NO on the bill.

    The so-called “Better Care Reconciliation Act” introduced in the Senate would take away health insurance from 22 million working, poor, and disabled Americans, gut Medicaid by almost $800 billion, and provide a massive tax cut for the wealthiest 2% of the population. The passage of this bill means that thousands of middle-class and poor people will die so that the rich can get richer.

    Inspired by ADAPT’s courageous nonviolent sit-ins last week targeting Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, we believe greater nonviolent direct action is called for to elevate the impact and unpopularity of the healthcare bill within the media and to pressure Republican Senators to vote NO on the bill.

    #AllOfUs, Democracy Spring, Democratic Socialists of America, Our Revolution, The People’s Consortium, Progressive Democrats of America, and Ultraviolet are working together to organize, coordinate, and support sit-ins at Senate offices across the country on Thursday, July 6th. We will target as many Republican Senators as possible with a common demand that they vote NO on the Better Care Reconciliation Act.

    Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Our country needs single-payer, Medicare for All that leaves no one out. But right now we must do everything we can to defend the tens of millions who will suffer if Trumpcare passes. If ordinary people rise up and demonstrate that this bill is morally unacceptable, if we put our own bodies and liberties on the line to show our neighbors that human lives are stake, we have a real shot at stopping this bill from becoming law.

  • McSally-This Budget is Immoral!
    8:00 am-9:00 am

    The House proposed Budget is against everything we stand for:  It will dismantle Medicare, put the AHCA provisions in place, cut food stamps to needy Americans, fund the “Wall,” and provide tax cuts to the rich. We MUST convince Martha McSally that this is bad for Americans and bad for Arizonans.

    Speak up.  Stand up.  Act out!

    Mi Familia Vota is a national 501(c)(4) civic engagement organization that advocates on social and economic issues that impact the Latino community, from immigration to workers rights.

    At Planned Parenthood, we believe that the ability to migrate with dignity and access to health care, and without fear of deportation or detention due to one’s immigration status, is an integral part of what it means to have a healthy and complete life. Part of honoring immigrant heritage in this country is ensuring that we advance health equity so that everyone is able to live a life of dignity — no matter what.

    *Immigrants are a vital part of the Planned Parenthood community; they are our patients, volunteers, activists, supporters, educators, clinicians and staff. They make our country better, stronger, and more vibrant. And they make Planned Parenthood stronger too.

    *Planned Parenthood is here for immigrant communities. At Planned Parenthood we believe that all people deserve the highest quality of care, no matter what – no matter who they are, where they live, or where they are from. Our doors are open to everyone, regardless
    of their immigration status.

    En Planned Parenthood creemos que la posibilidad de migrar con dignidad y acceder a cuidados de salud sin miedo a ser deportado o detenido por el estatus migratorio es una parte integral de lo que significa vivir una vida saludable y completa. Parte de honrar la herencia de los inmigrantes en este país es asegurarnos de trabajar hacia la equidad en salud de manera que todos puedan vivir una vida digna – sin importar qué pase.

    Los inmigrantes son parte vital de la comunidad de Planned Parenthood: son nuestros
    pacientes, voluntarios, activistas, colaboradores, educadores, clínicos y empleados. Ellos hacen que nuestro país sea mejor, más fuerte y más vibrante. Y además hacen que Planned Parenthood también se fortalezca.

    Planned Parenthood está presente en las comunidades de inmigrantes. Nosotros creemos que todas las personas se merecen la más alta calidad en cuidados de salud, sin importar qué pase; sin importar quiénes son, dónde residen, o de dónde provienen. Nuestras puertas están abiertas para todos, sin importar el estatus migratorio.
