We're pinning our hopes on you because children need health reform too!Share on Facebook.
The over one million members of MomsRising have one top priority and that's our kids. We're willing to wear our support for health reform that works for America’s kids on our sleeves. And we're asking our legislators to wear it on their lapel. MomsRising is collecting photographs of members of Congress wearing the pacifier pin, as a symbol of their commitment to make sure health reform is a win for kids too.MomsRising members sent over 15,000 letters and made hundreds of call to their members of Congress urging them to wear the pin! Check out the results below.Why is there a picture of a pacifier on the lapel pin? Because the over one million members of MomsRising won’t be pacified until Congress delivers a health reform plan that meets kids’ needs. That means: * Dependable preventive care, to catch problems early, keep kids in schoolrooms and out of emergency rooms and avoid unnecessary health care costs * Quality affordable coverage for all kids that goes beyond fix-it care and helps them grow and reach their potential * Simplifying enrollment systems, so neither private nor public bureaucracies stand between an eligible child and the care he or she needs
