Access to health care coverage is a lifesaver for families and our economy. We are working to ensure every family has access to quality affordable health care coverage because no one should have to choose between paying for groceries or housing and paying their medical bills.
No matter where we come from, or what our color, all of us should be able to access health care when we get sick.
President Trump has been subverting the democratic process and working to reverse the progress and gains we’ve made on health care coverage in recent years every chance he gets.
Have you or a family member:
- Been able (or unable) to access paid leave and/or paid sick days through the new Families First Coronavirus Response Act?
- Been laid off/furloughed because of the pandemic and had to access Unemployment Insurance?
- Been laid off/furloughed and used up all your unemployment benefits available to you?
- Been forced out of work (or reduced your hours) due to caregiving responsibilities (including, lack of affordable child care options)?
- Contracted the coronavirus and had to seek medical care, or had difficulty seeking testing or treatment?

The pandemic is hitting us all hard, especially women who are losing jobs at record numbers.
Many emergency benefits, like emergency paid leave, expanded unemployment benefits, and others expire on Dec. 31st of this year. We want to increase pressure on our elected officials and policy makers to provide immediate relief to our families. Sharing your personal experiences can make a HUGE difference in helping elected leaders understand why taking critical steps—extending and expanding emergency benefits including paid leave, unemployment insurance, and supporting childcare—are essential to the health and well-being of our communities.
