Call to Action: July 31, 2018

DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS WILL BE MAILED: 78

DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS ARE DUE: 98


WHAT IS YOUR HEALTH CARE STORY?


How has Medicaid and Medicare affected you and your family? We’d love to know.

We ask that you record a short 1- to 2-minute video with your health care stories that we can share.

Another option, should you prefer, is to use this template to write a letter to our MOC’s with your health care testimonials.

When you have completed your videos and letters, please send copies to us at contact@ord2indivisible.org and/or post them on Facebook Messenger, whichever is easier for you.

Our plan is to share the videos and letters as far and wide as we can, reaching out to others so they know how critically important health care and the Medicaid & Medicare programs are in the lives of millions.


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

The list of issues facing us continues to grow on a daily basis. Take the time today to select one, two or more of the issues that are most important to you: health care, education, immigration reform, SCOTUS, Mueller investigation, etc. and to call the offices of each of our Members of Congress.

One of the messages we receive in response to our calls is that the calls do work, they are counted and they make a difference!
