Action #1: Phone Bank to Help Keep Pressure on Before Today’s Vote
Mitch McConnell is planning to call a vote as soon as 2 p.m. Eastern TODAY. At this time, it’s not clear what the Senate will be voting on, but based on past reports from the CBO, millions will lose their healthcare if drastic Medicaid go through -- not to mention the rollback of lifesaving standards and benefits.
We need to keep the pressure on swing state Senators by calling constituents in Ohio and West Virginia. We’re asking them to call their Senators and vote "NO" on ACA repeal. Last week, we made over 2000 calls and got over 400 people to commit to call their Senators. Let's keep it up!
We’re inviting you to phone bank from home, or better yet, you can host a few friends for your own private phone bank! No need to be in Chicago or even Illinois; the call from home option is available to everyone!
Sign up and we'll send you tips on organizing a phone bank, the latest script, and links to the phone bank systems.
Action #2: RSVP for Our Lives on the Line Rally on Saturday, July 29
Hosted by the Women’s March, Our Lives on the Line is a massive nationwide day of action to uplift the voices of the millions of Americans whose healthcare will be ripped away if Congressional Republicans continue with their plan to give more power to big insurance companies and undermine affordable, quality care.
The Chicago rally will be held in solidarity with the national event in D.C. and the dozens of events nationwide. You’ll hear from leaders from the progressive and healthcare communities organizing to take a stand against the Republican repeal bill and send a clear message to Congress: our lives are on the line!

Why Today's Actions are Important
The threat of ACA repeal is very real and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. We need to fight fatigue and keep the pressure up to protect millions of Americans from losing their healthcare.
