A ruling on the Health Care Repeal Lawsuit (Texas v. United States) is expected any day and we need to be readyThe Trump administration alongside a coalition led by the Texas attorney general is using this politically motivated lawsuit to argue that the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA) should be invalidated, an extreme position that places millions of people at risk of losing their health coverage and protections for pre-existing conditions. Now the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is poised to issue a decision that could result in the biggest blow yet to the ACA's survival.

While California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is leading the charge to protect the ACA in the courts, health care advocates across the country are preparing to activate their networks on decision day.

Join Community Catalyst's Michael Miller and Attorney General Becerra's staff this Thursday, Oct 3 at 3:00 PM Eastern for a conversation about what to expect and how to plan.

On the call we'll discuss potential outcomes of the ruling, provide recommended advocacy strategies, and facilitate a Q&A about next steps

This will be an important opportunity to hear directly from Attorney General Becerra's office about what's ahead and share your own thoughts and tactics with fellow advocates.
 

We won’t stay silent during this latest attack on the health coverage of millions of people. Let's coordinate our efforts to ensure our voices are heard.

In solidarity,
