Hi Advocate,

Will you join our statewide day of action this Thursday, Feb 21 to make sure all of our State Representatives hear our support for extending health care to 275,000 Ohioans?

Last night in his State of Governor Kasich showed he cares about strengthening families and communities in Ohio. The Governor courageously proposed to extend health coverage to 275,000 while safeguarding Ohio taxpayers. However, if the Ohio House of Representatives voted on the budget today, we're concerned they would decide not to extend Medicaid.

Our goal is to show members of the Ohio House that there is broad public support to extend health coverage to 275,000 Ohioans in the state budget.

Our message is simple: “Please keep Medicaid Expansion in the budget. We can’t afford not to expand coverage.”

How to join our day of action:

  • Follow the instructions below to make 1 call and send 1 email to your state representative.
  • Share this action opportunity with your network using email, Twitter, or Facebook. Will you let me know if you spread the word to your network?

Thanks for sharing the plan with your community and joining us in advocating for healthy families and communities in Ohio. 

Will Petrik, State Director
