Fighting for Children’s Right to Grow Up Healthy and Happy
Underserved and underrepresented communities need a variety of health and human services to grow healthy such as quality health care, economic opportunities and stability, education, social services and a safe environment. Without access to these services, communities will continue to face disparities and inequities that hinder their ability to thrive.
Health Care for All
Health care is a right and everyone should have access, regardless of age, income, or ethnicity. We support the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and any health care options that provide and expand access to quality health care for all in a sustainable way.
Underserved communities depend on Medicaid coverage for their everyday health care needs. Funding for these programs must be protected because the majority of the program beneficiaries are low-income and have no other viable options available.
My Vote, My Health™ is a network of organizations that empower underserved and underrepresented communities to find their voice and understand the decisions being made about their health and communities.
Vulnerable, but valuable members of society are often left out of critical decisions that impact them, their families, and their communities. My Vote, My Health™ is dedicated to establishing and promoting the voice of underserved and underrepresented communities that have historically been excluded from making informed decisions about their health.
We accomplish this through:
- Education. By educating constituents about issues that directly impact them, we are creating awareness to change the outcomes of important decisions
- Empowerment. We introduce and clarify complex legislative and policy issues to community members and leaders to ensure they are making the most informed decision. By introducing a platform and different avenues where these members can share their input and views, we are empowering them to ensure their voice is represented in critical decisions
- Mobilization: Through education and empowerment, we mobilize the underserved and underrepresented members to register to vote and make their voice heard on Election Day
