We are so ecstatic to celebrate the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)’s 25th anniversary! CHIP is a federal/state partnership program that helps insure kids in all fifty states. Making sure our children have health insurance ensures that we always give our kids a winning hand of lifelong health. This critically important program was created by Republicans and Democrats together in 1997 because it was a low-cost, sound investment in our children’s health and future – and they were right...

Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade took effect, we’ve been doing everything we can to secure our reproductive rights for every single person, in every single state. Their decision reversed our right at the national level to choose when, and if, we want to have children and threw that power to the states. At this moment, we need everyone’s voice, including yours! → Here’s what we need from you: Sign our letter to the President and his Administration urging them to...
I am the program manager of the Gate City Coalition, which is the Greensboro, NC branch of Cure Violence . Cure Violence works to end gun violence through a community violence interruption model. I was brought into this work when I was shot in the head in 2011. I do not consider myself to be a victim; I am a survivor of gun violence. I am driven to do this work because of the injuries I sustained, as well as by the loss of family members. Two big losses really pushed me into this work. One was...

Crowd of protesters with person holding a round sign that reads "Grow Abortion Power"
The overturn of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court has had a devastating impact on the ability of people seeking abortion care to be able to access the healthcare that they need. We know that 6 in 10 people who need and have had an abortion are moms. Being able to choose if we have children, and if so when and how many children to have, is a fundamental right. The stripping away of our right to bodily autonomy, and to be free and equal members of society, disproportionately affects women of color...

By the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Do you or a family member currently have health coverage through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) ? If so, you may soon need to take steps to find out if you can continue your coverage. Soon, states will resume Medicaid and CHIP eligibility reviews. This means some people with Medicaid or CHIP could be disenrolled from those programs. However, they may be eligible to buy a health plan through the Health Insurance...

You are not alone. That’s what the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) wants new parents to know. Last month, HRSA launched a 24-hour maternal mental health hotline (1-833-9-HELP4MOMS or 1-833-943-5746) which offers free and confidential access to professional counselors that provide mental health support, resources, and referrals to pregnant and postpartum mothers and their loved ones. It is a resource I wish that I’d had when I gave birth to my son 20 years ago. For months...
