Protect Health Care for Californians! Send Us Your Story
Since passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), over 5 million newly eligible Californians have gained access to health coverage, a majority communities of color through Medi-Cal and Covered California. In 2014, California expanded its Medi-Cal program to cover all low-income parents and childless adults under age 65 including lawfully present immigrants and DACA youth and began to provide financial assistance so families could afford to purchase health insurance through Covered California. California also went further than most states, providing access to Medi-Cal for undocumented children in 2016.

But all of these gains are now at risk. President-elect Trump, and the Republican majority in Congress—including many Congressional Representatives from California—have promised that the ACA should be repealed, without a comprehensive plan to replace it. Without these new options and financial assistance, millions of people who have benefited from the ACA will face dire health and economic consequences.

We need your help to be explicit with the new Congress and Administration about the true impact of their decisions—to fight to preserve the benefits we rely on today. Please share your story about how the ACA has helped your community member. Your voice matters, and it will be what helps preserve this progress.

We will honor your community member’s wishes for anonymity, without exception
