ACTION ITEM; LET THE MEDIA KNOW THAT WE NEED HEALTH CARE FOR ALL

#health4All campaign highlights the contributions of undocumented Californians to our state, while raising awareness of their lack of access to affordable health care coverage. Sometimes, opportunities arise for us to turn the needle on local and statewide discussions about whether or not our state should provide health coverage to our undocumented populations.

 

This morning, the Ventura County star posted an online poll (see below) asking if the State of California should provide full Medi-Cal coverage to undocumented people. So far, 13% have voted yes with only 83 votes while 87% have voted no. We know that this does not accurately reflect how our state and communities feel about this issue. Please participate in the poll and forward it to others.
