MEDIA ADVISORY: Virtual Town Hall: Still Fighting for Our Health


The ACA is under attack, again. Join California Elected Officials and Advocates to Learn What’s at Stake 

SACRAMENTO, CA –  This Thursday, October 15, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Congressional leaders, health consumer advocates, and over 130 registered participates will hold a Virtual Town Hall: Still Fighting For Our Health to discuss what is at stake in California. The town hall will detail the specific impacts on California’s health system, including the millions of Californians are at risk of losing their health care coverage. New informational fact sheets will be available at the time of the town hall which show the commitment to fight to keep the Affordable Care Act as the impact of potentially losing it will be catastrophic for many. 

You will be able to hear from speakers such as Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Congress members Ted Lieu, Ro Khanna, and TJ Cox, and our partners with Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, the LGBTQ Health and Human Services Network, and the California Pan Ethnic Health Network. The ACA expanded health coverage to millions of Californians by covering preexisting conditions, expanding access to reproductive/contraceptive care, reducing drug prices for seniors on Medicare, establishing the Covered California marketplace, expanding Medi-Cal, and so much more. All of these benefits are at risk in the case before the Supreme Court.
