Action: We Can Demand Leaders Who Care About Our Well-Being




We need a country in which the health and well-being of every American is important.  

We demand leadership that has more regard for human life than for political advantage.  

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will provide that leadership. They will:

  • Pass pandemic relief rather than pushing to ideologically stack the Supreme Court.

  • Restore faith in our public health institutions by protecting them from political manipulation.

  • Ensure that scientists and health professionals, not political hacks, are making vital public health decisions.

  • Protect the ACA and ensure affordable health care for all Americans.

  • Remove the chaos and racism from our health care system.

  • Protect a woman’s right to choose and have access to reproductive health care.

“Someday there will be great people, great elected representatives who will say, ‘enough of this nonsense, let’s be the kind of legislature the United States should have.' I hope that day will come when I’m still alive." - Justice Ginsburg, 2017

We honor RBG’s memory by making this happen now.  We demand that our MoCs work for a Supreme Court that represents all of us – not just Trump and his GOP.  

And we must get out the vote for Joe, Kamala, and Democrats across the board. "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
