Join Actions All Around WV to Stop Zombie Healthcare Repeal Bill!

West Virginia is KILLING IT, y’all!

There are multiple rallies happening in our state this week that will all focus on urging Senator Capito to protect our healthcare and vote NO on the dangerous Graham-Cassidy bill that will devastate West Virginians.

If you are in the area and are able, please stop by one of these rallies and show Senator Capito that West Virginians reject this bill and she should too. If you can’t make it in person, join us as we call Senator Capito’s office daily to tell her to stand with WV and vote NO! (202)-224-6472, (304) 346-5372

Also: Today, follow us on social media as we travel with WV Constituents to DC to meet with Senator Capito and make our voices heard on Capitol Hill! Follow along at: http://www.facebook.com/wvcag/ and http://www.twitter.com/wvcag/


Monday: Kill the Bill, Don’t Kill Us, Capito! Rally and Die-In in a Success Parkersburg!

Our friends at Wood County Indivisible kicked it off this week with a visually stark “Die-in” on Monday in Parkersburg! From the Parkersburg News Sentinel:

The Rev. Janice Hill thought when the last attempt to repeal – the skinny repeal – died in July, it would be the last time. “Yet here we are again,” she said from the stage at Bicentennial Park


Tuesday: Put a Human Face on Trumpcare’s Injustice in Morgantown

The Cassidy-Graham bill may be dead, but that doesn’t mean the work is done. So, tomorrow, we are asking Capito to put partisan politics aside and to fix the ACA. Come with pictures, representing the constituents counting on her to come up with REAL solutions.
When & Where: 12:00PM-12:45pm, 48 Donley St, Morgantown, WV 26501

Tuesday: Save Our Healthcare Rally in Huntington

We will rally on the sidewalk in front of the hospital in support of the patients and workers at the hospital and elsewhere who may be in danger of losing out on funding, insurance coverage, and ultimately access to healthcare if the Graham-Cassidy bill is passed in the senate. We need to stand and fight for the right have access to healthcare for all Americans.
