#MillionLetterMarch: A Blizzard of Mail is Going to Washington to Protect the ACA
You marched on Washington (or in one of the 673 sister marches around the world), but now what? Channel that energy, pick up a pen, and grab that random piece of stationery from your desk drawer. (Come on, you know the one I’m talking about. Everyone has that leftover notecard from a box of stationery they got at a White Elephant 15 years ago.) We’re going to write the President.
Because he works for us, and he needs to know that there are key provisions in the Affordable Care Act that need to remain for Americans to be healthy and happy. They’re provisions that reduce stress, ensure coverage, and prevent larger health problems down the road.
This is all you need to do to participate in the #MillionLetterMarch, and you don’t even need to get out of your pyjamas to do it:
1. Grab a random piece of stationery and a pen.
2. Write this message:
Dear President Trump:
Thank you for working to make health insurance more affordable. Please make sure these five key things stay (or are improved):
- Keep kids on parents’ insurance until 26.
- No discrimination for pre-existing conditions.
- Keep preventative care measures that keep us healthy & reduce costs.
- No lifetime or annual benefit limits.
- Keep birth control coverage, which prevents pregnancies and reduces costs down the road.
I appreciate your urgent attention to this critical matter!
3. Take a selfie with your letter, post it to the social media site of your choice, and tag it #MillionLetterMarch. We’d appreciate it if you tagged us (@WHAMGlobal) in your tweet or status update so we can like your post and send some love your way.
4. Stick your letter in an envelope and mail it to this address:
President Donald Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
The #MillionLetterMarch will keep rolling through February, but aim to get your letter out there early. Grab your friends and have a letter writing coffee date. Tell your Girl Scout troop to let their thoughts be heard. Pass out stationery at the senior center. Everyone, we have work to do and aspects of a law to protect.
