Don’t Wait – Support NCIL to Save Healthcare!

35th Anniversary Logo: NCIL – National Council on Independent Living. Celebrating 35 Years of Advocacy. Graphic features party candles.The first 100 days of the Trump administration are over. We’ve managed to save healthcare so far, but the war is still waging. Today, the House of Representatives will vote on an amended version of the American Healthcare Act (AHCA), which would roll back protection for those with pre-existing conditions, gut Medicaid, and give states the option of deciding what services to cover – meaning that people in need of certain healthcare services could be forced to move just to get the care they need. Make no mistake: the lives of all people with disabilities are in jeopardy from this bill.

No matter what happens today, we’re going to need all hands on deck. Whether we’re trying to head the bill off in the Senate, or gearing up for another pass in the House, there are still many battles to come. That’s why we need your support, now more than ever.

Make a donation to help us continue our advocacy against the AHCA and contact your Representatives to urge them to vote NO on the AHCA. With your help, we can stop this dangerous bill in its tracks.
