Virtual Advocacy Day

Update - Virtual Advocacy Day to focus on protecting the ACA

President Trump and the House GOP remain committed to dismantle the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) is expected to return to the House floor all too soon. With this in mind, the focus of our digital day of action will be shifting from the state budget to protecting the ACA and defeating the AHCA.

The Participant's Guide has been updated to reflect this change with new Twitter chat questions and tweets for the Twitter Storm. Click below to download the guide so you can plan for this important day of action.

Join us on April 26 for Virtual Advocacy Day, where we will use online and social media tools to tell Congress to protect health care for people living with and vulnerable to HIV.

Both organizations and individuals can participate by using Twibbon, Facebook and Twitter to be heard and help make the conversation about the need to pass a positive budget in Illinois trend. Join the resistance on April 26 by changing your social media profile pictures with Twibbon; participating in our Twitter Chat and creating a Twitter Storm by contacting your legislators via social media.
