Help expand Medicaid so hard-working Nebraskans can get health coverage
You did it! You helped the Insure The Good Life campaign collect more than 135,000 signatures to let Nebraskans vote this fall on expanding Medicaid, which would help about 90,000 of our hard-working friends and neighbors finally get the health coverage they need.
But we’re not done yet. We need to make sure Nebraskans go to the polls on November 6 and vote “For Initiative 427″ to expand Medicaid.
Here are a few ways you can help:
- Make sure you and your friends are registered to vote! Here is a voter registration form in English and en Español. You also can register at your county’s election commission.
- In Lincoln: Volunteer with Appleseed to talk with members of our community about this important issue. You can sign-up to canvass door-to-door using this link, or sign-up for a phone bank to call Nebraska voters.
- In Omaha: Sign-up with the Insure the Good Life campaign to help with door-to-door canvassing or phone banking.
- You can sign-up to early vote for November’s election using this link and help us rack up votes to expand Medicaid before election day rolls around.
We are long overdue to expand Medicaid and make sure all hard-working people can get access to quality health coverage. With your help and your votes, our friends and neighbors can finally get the health care everyone needs.
Reject the White House’s latest cruel, anti-immigrant proposal
Take a moment to oppose a cruel new Trump Administration proposal that would radically alter immigration law and undermine our nation’s long-standing commitment to welcoming immigrants.
This plan would deny many aspiring Americans the right to become lawful permanent residents if they have used certain work-support programs or temporary safety nets that help many hard-working families continue their jobs and move out of poverty.
It could reduce the availability of healthy food for children, deny access to life-saving prenatal care, and turn people away from safe homes. Learn more about the proposal here.
The good news is this is only a proposal and has not gone into effect yet. You can voice your opposition today. Please click here and leave a public comment opposing this damaging proposal.
Everyone should have a safe workplace
Over the past decades, significant and convincing data has piled up to show that working in the meatpacking and poultry processing industries continue to be some of the most dangerous jobs in the country.
The Trump Administration has proposed a new rule to make it even more dangerous – both for workers in pork slaughter plants and the food that makes it to your plate. The plan to remove federal food safety inspectors and increase the already dangerously high line speeds in pork plants would be a disaster for all involved.
Tell our members of Congress to pass a law to protect food and worker safety by rejecting this increase in line speed. Our lawmakers must pass protections that prevent the hard-working men and women who prepare our food from suffering permanent, crippling injuries on the job.
