To answer the need for one single place on the internet to find stories about people with disabilities who need Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare, we have an answer.
Disability Power for Community Integration is asking that stories be sent to Colleen Flanagan of Disability Action for America, who has agreed to host all disability stories about the impact of Medicaid cuts and ACA repeal on the Disability Action website. This can be the go-to place to get stories from across the states.
So please send ALL STORIES YOU COLLECT to Colleen@DisabilityActionUSA.com . Even if you sent her stories before, send them again. Colleen will share the url where all the stories are posted and these can be a resource as we advocate with Congress and in the states. When do we need the stories?
NOW! Why? Because MONDAY CONGRESS IS IN SESSION and we need to be ready. Paul Ryan will introduce the budget reconciliation bill and we gotta have our material to fight back. So please, send your stories about why the ACA and Medicaid matter to you, to Colleen, today! You can also send a photo of yourself as well.
