"I have terrible eyesight; my whole family does. But I'm too old to be covered on their vision insurance plan anymore. As a GW employee, I should have access to vision insurance because I need my eyes to grade and study!"
Pat Geiger, Geography
“I believe grad workers have the right to better healthcare because: No one should have to go into thousands of dollars in debt to go to the dentist on a regular basis.”
Jacklin Bolduan, American Studies
“On my first day of law school, on the way to my first ever law school class, I flipped over my bike handlebars and landed on my face outside the IMF. Ultimately, I required 13 stitches and had one of my teeth replaced. By some miracle, I was able to carry over my employer's dental coverage from when I had been working a month before. Absent that stroke of luck, I would have spent thousands on the painful and expensive procedures to get a new tooth. I'm organizing because I know that few are as lucky as I am. No one should have to go into intense debt because the administration considers dental care a luxury.”
James Hannaway, Law
