Oppose Price's confirmation

 

PLEASE ACT NOW: The HELP Committee confirmation hearing begins on Wednesday, January 18 and the Finance Committee is expected to follow as soon as the next day.

CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY, especially members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) and Finance committees. Urge them to vote NO on Representative Price's nomination.

Step 1: Call 202-224-3121. Ask for your Senator's office, or find a direct line here.

Step 2: Tell your Senator:
My name is [your name]. I am your constituent calling from [your city/state/organization]. I urge you to oppose Representative Price's confirmation as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Representative Price's record demonstrates a grave lack of support for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault: he opposed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 and has questioned the protections it provides for LGBTQ individuals. His record also demonstrates that he opposes health programs that benefit women. He has been a staunch opponent to women's reproductive rights and has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. [Add additional concerns you may have.]

Representative Price's record tells us he will not champion the concerns of women and families. Vote NO on his nomination to be Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Step 3: Share this action alert with your networks, allies, and constituents.

Step 4: Let us know you've acted by emailing Advocacy@ywcapgh.org.

Step 5: Share your concerns on social media, using #PriceisWrong. Tweet directly at your Senators! Fewer than 50 tweets from constituents can make a difference - your voice counts.

Sample Facebook Post:
I do not support Representative Price's confirmation as Secretary of Health and Human Services. He opposed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013; he has promoted policies that prohibit women's access to reproductive health; he wants to privatize Medicare and make drastic cuts to Medicaid; and he has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Confirmation of Representative Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services would be harmful to women's health. Join me in calling our Senators today to let them know that Representative Price is WRONG for HHS.
