Fall is in full swing, which means it's time again for RaisingVoicesUSA monthly meetings! At our first meeting on Tuesday, September 26, we'll recap what we've accomplished as a group and outline our direction for the future. As always, new faces are welcome. See below for time and location details.
We look forward to seeing you and kicking off a new year of continued civic engagement!
Ways to take action this week:
Keep up-to-date with the latest healthcare news
While Congress has not yet been able to pass healthcare reform, key developments have emerged in the past week. Senator Bernie Sanders introduced the Medicare for All Act 2017 outlining a single-payer healthcare system, while Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham introduced a new bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Learn more about these bills, their likelihood of passing, and their implications.
Prepare for Election Day
For those of us in Nassau County (and New York State), primary elections are done, and our attention turns to November's Election. The Nassau County League of Women Voters has planned a full slate of events to help you understand the issues and get to know your local candidates. Attend an event near you if you can and get ready to hit the polls in November!
