LGBTs - Vote NO on Health Care Repeal - Call Congress TODAY

via the National Coalition for LGBT Health


Fight for your right to a healthier community: tell your Representative to vote no on repealing health care reform.

"Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane."
- Martin Luther King, Jr., 1966

On Monday, January 17, we remember(ed) one of the most important civil and human rights champions of our time: Martin Luther King, Jr. As one of the most visible leaders of the modern civil rights movement, he was a prophetic voice speaking out for the equal and just treatment of all people.

Dr. King’s spirit is carried on by activists like you who share his belief in inherent human worth, a belief that takes us beyond asking for freedom from discrimination and to demanding the resources we need to live full and healthy lives. As Dr. King reminded us almost fifty years ago, access to health care is justice at its most basic. Its denial is injustice at its most base.

In direct opposition to Dr. King’s legacy, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 2, “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,” on Wednesday, January 19. This bill will attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, last year’s historic law that extends access to health and health care to millions of people in America.In partnership with the National Black Justice Coalition and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Coalition for LGBT Health asks you to help keep Dr. King's dream alive.

Call the Capitol Hill Switchboard right now at (202) 224-3121 and tell them where you live. They’ll connect you with your Representative.

Tell them to vote no on repealing health care reform.

That's (202) 224-3121. CALL NOW.
