– If you experienced a problem voting in the primary, we want to hear about it! We’re working with partners and allies to gather information about issues and challenges experienced in West Virginia’s 2022 primary election and to pressure state and local election officials to take action on these issues before the general election. Please fill out our 2022 Primary Election Issues and Action Survey to share your story or contact firstname.lastname@example.org about your voting experience.
– If you would like to volunteer with Health Care for All WV, or help with the Make Meds Affordable campaign, please contact us at email@example.com.
– Tell Our Senators to Extend the Black Lung Excise Tax – go to blacklungkills.org and fill out the form.
– Contact your legislators, and let them know that, although we have made great progress towards a Medicaid Buy-in, and copay caps on diabetic supplies, we need their support in 2023 to get them both over the finish line.
– Take Action here (https://protectmedicare.net/take-action/), and contact your Congress members. Tell them they should demand answers, and an end to the REACH program or any Medicare privatization, from the Biden administration.
