REAL REFORM: PROTECTING WOMEN AND IMMIGRANTS’ ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE
Women and Immigrants should not be worse off as a result of health care reform!
We cannot afford to not take action! Take this opportunity to educate yourself and your community around the recent events surrounding Health Care Reform.
What: A virtual cafecito (informal discussion over coffee) to discuss the latest on Health Care Reform and how you can immediately get involved hosted by the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health.
Why: While health care reform passed a hurdle in the House of Representatives, women and immigrants were left on the sidelines. Congress included an amendment that singled out and banned most abortions from all public and private health plans in the insurance exchange. They also continue to have a 5 year ban for legal permanent residents to participate in public health programs. In order to ensure adequate access and coverage for all we must educate and organize our communities to take action to ensure that our needs remain front and center as health care reform advances.
When: Wednesday November 18, 2009 at 5:30pm EST
Where: It’s virtual (on the phone)! So bring your cafecito (coffee), and we will provide the call-in information.
Please reply to Stephanie@latinainstitute.org if you are interested in participating ASAP, and we will respond with the call information and materials.
