As a local League leader and influential voice in your community, you have a unique opportunity to speak out on important issues. That is why we need you to share the League’s point of view on a critical national issue.
There is a great debate happening in Congress and across the country regarding health care and contraception. A few weeks ago, the US Senate narrowly defeated an amendment that would have allowed insurers and employers to deny coverage based on “religious or moral objections.”
Since 1992, when League members studied health care policy, we have worked to ensure access to quality health care for all. The current debate challenges the League’s position and threatens access to preventive care for millions of Americans.
We need you to speak out in your community. Take a look at this template letter to the editor that can be customized and shared with your local newspaper editor. Please read it, tailor it to your community if you’d like, and submit it using your League title. Your voice can make a difference in providing access to preventive services and stop discrimination based on gender.
