Letter Writing Parties

Tennessee, and the country, is facing a health care crisis. If Congress votes to repeal or change the ACA, financially restructure Medicaid, or cut funding to programs such as CHIP, we will see many Americans lose their health care coverage, premiums will increase, and rural hospitals will suffer.

But we can make a difference. Senator Lamar Alexander and Senator Corker play crucial roles in the future of our country’s healthcare system. Senator Alexander is one of the most important voices in this conversation — which means we have some of the most important voices. Senator Alexander is the Chair of the Health Committee in DC and has been, on the record, saying that the ACA needs to be repaired and Medicaid funding should be cut. Senator Corker has pressed for Medicaid cuts in the past, and he continues to work closely with Senator Alexander.  They need to hear from us. Now, and throughout the entire year. And that’s why we’re asking you to TAKE ACTION by hosting a letter-writing party.

On Thursday evenings, TJC will host a webinar that explains the health care crisis, what’s at stake, and why Senator Alexander and Senator Corker are so important. Then, we’ll offer letter templates, and ask for folks to write a letter to Senator Alexander and Senator Corker. You may also want to write letters to your state representatives too.

We want you to watch the webinar — but we also want you to bring your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to watch it, and then take action. Write letters together, and then ask your friends to commit to hosting their own party the following week. Together, we can make sure that Senator Alexander and Senator Corker receive hundreds of letters from their constituents, asking them to do the right thing.

Why wait? Sign up now to host a letter-writing party to engage your friends, and to make sure that our health care coverage is safe.

Resources

If you sign up to host a webinar, TJC will:

  • Send you a packet of envelopes, stamps, paper, and template letters, as well as a paper copy of the toolkit and resources below.
  • Answer questions during the webinar.
  • Offer financial assistance to anyone who needs help providing snacks.

Your job is to bring your people together so that they can learn more information, and take action. If each party has two people who agree to host their own party, our numbers will double every week. That’s pretty amazing. So sign up to host a party, and check out the toolkit to get you started!
