Fight the repeal of ACA, Infringement events, Speak Out for Ethical Peace Officers + more

Dear Friends, 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 7/24/17

Fight the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA)! (AKA, Obamacare)
These next few days may be the most important of this fight and we have to keep up the pressure. Congress is working to take away health coverage from 22 million Americans by repealing Obamacare. It will hurt everyone by stealing insurance, but women, transgender people, and marginalized communities will be hit the hardest. Republicans will soon vote on dropping coverage for mothers, people with disabilities, working families, and anyone who is vulnerable.
Saturday, July 29, is Healthcare National Day of Action and all across the country, hundreds of thousands of people will tell Senators NO to this attack on women, our families and our communities.
Please call 1.844.311.1880 and urge our senators to vote ‘no’ on any attempt to repeal or weaken the Affordable Care Act. You can let our Congress people know as well. All at 202-224-3121, or see wnypeace.org/GovtContactInfo.

Lots going on, especially about Racial Justice on Tuesday – and Resist Militarism virtually daily from July 29! – exciting events with nationally known guests and special opportunities! See you there!! Please also go to the calendar page as well as our Facebook page for information. We shall overcome!!
