Even as we continue working to protect health care from attacks at the state and federal level, we must celebrate all that we have accomplished this year: Against tall odds, we defeated SB 28, a state bill that would have slashed Medicaid funding for children, people with disabilities, and seniors. And, as of October, the Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land. In the current political landscape, these are tremendous victories that are worth celebrating. And, they wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless efforts of volunteers and supportive legislators.
Join us to celebrate our successes this year, to thank all of the volunteers and elected officials who have helped, and to recognize a group of champions who are leading the fight. While we’re together, we’ll also recommit to continuing to work to protect what we have while we build support for transforming the health care system into a system that truly covers everybody.
