Urgent Action Needed – SB 562 Town Hall in Fresno 09/14/2017 @7pm

Healthy California

Warning: Healthcare-For-All Is In Danger!
Urgent action is needed by your Assemblymember in Sacramento. Join our town hall to learn about the The Healthy California Act, SB 562, and the next steps to guarantee healthcare for all Californians.

SB 562 Town Hall – Fresno

The California Nurses Association, HealthyCA, Our Revolution and #KnockEveryDoor have scheduled town halls throughout the state to engage community members with the campaign for SB 562, legislation which would guarantee health coverage to all Californians and eliminate premiums, deductibles and other out-of-pocket health costs.

Here’s the next one near you:

Time/Date:  September 14, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
Location:  Hamilton Elementary School, 102 E. Clinton Avenue, Fresno, CA 93704
For more information: www.healthycaliforniaact.org

The Healthy California Act, SB 562, passed the full Senate this summer and was set for consideration in the Assembly in late June when Speaker Anthony Rendon abruptly refused to let it out of the Rules Committee. Since then supporters have redoubled their efforts in organizing support for the bill on the grassroots level by conducting door-to-door canvassing in various Assembly districts, including the 63rd, which Rendon is supposed to represent, and holding several lively protests at the state capitol building in Sacramento.

The California Nurses Association sponsored a recent study by expert economists at University of Massachusetts Amherst on how to pay for SB 562—revealing that enacting the bill would save Californians $37 billion off our current cost for healthcare.

Hurricane Irma

Kamala Harris

Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida over the weekend — displacing more than 6.3 million Americans and causing at least three million people to lose power.

Once again, it’s a devastating natural disaster we cannot ignore.

That’s why I’m asking you to make a donation to support local nonprofits in Florida that are helping the victims of Hurricane Irma.

Anything you can spare — from $5 to $25 — can make a real difference in the lives of so many people:

DONATE TO SUPPORT HURRICANE IRMA VICTIMS

I was incredibly proud of our team last month during the flooding in Texas when you donated more than $150,000 to victims within 48 hours.

It’s a testament to the spirit of the American people.

That when times are tough and disaster strikes, we put aside our petty politics and stand with our friends, family, and neighbors.

Not a single one of you asked whether the people we helped were Republican or Democrat. You didn’t ask who they voted for or where they stood on this issue or that issue. You did something that matters. You helped.

This is a moment in time that is calling for us to do it again as millions of people face another catastrophic weather event. So please donate today to support local nonprofits helping victims in Florida:

DONATE TO SUPPORT HURRICANE IRMA VICTIMS

Let’s take away from these moments — as we watch the devastation on our TVs and read courageous stories on our social media feeds — to remind ourselves who we are as a country.

And please keep the people of Florida and surrounding areas in your thoughts, prayers, and actions.

Thanks for all you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
