Meet Nikki Brown-Booker. She knows how to resist, and to win. As a child, Nikki was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and has relied on a wheelchair and Medicaid to get through college, build a career and win legislation expanding home care assistance for seniors & people with disabilities in San Francisco.
Now she’s ready for the next fight — Trump’s attack on our health care. “The threats to Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act jeopardize my life and the lives of so many who need care the most.” Nikki says. Trump’s already signed an executive order attacking the ACA. We need to act now.
Join Nikki tomorrow for the Bay Area’s first #ResistTrumpTuesdays, weekly actions by people across the country for the first 100 days of Trump’s administration. Nikki and others with disabilities, seniors, healthcare workers and families threatened by federal health care cuts are leading our first action to defend our communities. Will you join her?
Tomorrow, Tuesday at 10 am at 50 UN Plaza in San Francisco, we’ll call on Senator Kamala Harris to lead the fight to save healthcare for millions of Americans and reject Tom Price, Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Health and Human Services, whose Senate confirmation hearing is scheduled that same day.
And tomorrow, Congress is anticipated to vote on H.R. 7, a bill that would make the Hyde amendment permanent, blocking federal Medicaid funding for abortion and severely restricting abortion rights, especially for low-income families of color. Say no to HR 7 here
Will you be there with us tomorrow to demand healthcare for each and every one of us?
Let’s show that our resistance grows stronger when we stand together.
