LIVESTREAM: Our Live On The Line Town Hall Kick-Off

The threat of the coronavirus underscores the need for everyone to have access to affordable health care and prescription drugs. Now more than ever, the lives of people on the frontlines, health care workers, and people with pre-existing conditions are on the line.

Two years ago, Health Care Voter started out by crossing America to lift up stories about the need to protect the ACA. Now we’re back, and in the middle of a major health care pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we fight together for access to affordable care, medicines, and vaccines.

Health Care Voter is launching “Our Lives On The Line: A Digital Town Hall Series” to elevate the stories and experiences of Americans affected by the spread of the coronavirus, and how in the face of this epidemic we’re still fighting for the Affordable Care Act and against the skyrocketing costs of prescription drug prices in our country.

In this digital town hall here on Facebook Live, we’ll hear from key voices in this important conversation and you won’t want to miss it:

- Congresswoman Deb Haaland, District 1, New Mexico
- Mary Kay Henry, President, SEIU
- Maura Calsyn, Managing Director of Health Policy, Center for American Progress
- Sa’Ra Skipper, Patient Advocate
- Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director, Network Advocates
- Sara Benitez, Vice-President of Organizing and Campaigns, Faith in Public Life
- Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, Executive Director/CEO and Co-Founder, MomsRising.org
- Rosemary Enobakhare, Campaign Director, Health Care Voter
