Pledge to be a #HealthCareVoter in the 2020 General Election
When we vote this fall, our lives are literally on the line. Elected officials in Southern states have continued to refuse Medicaid expansion, denying their citizens the health care that 38 other states currently benefit from.
The people of the South deserve access to health care, and our voting has the power to bring change. By reclaiming our tax dollars and our access to care, we are fighting against the legacies of health disparities and racial discrimination that have plagued our nation for far too long.
Will you join us in supporting effective health policies by electing people who see us, value us, and are willing to invest in our health?
"We can rise up. We can vote up. We can speak up. And guess what? We can build a new South."
