For Immediate Release

Los Angeles - Hundreds of Los Angeles-area health care workers, nurses, advocates, patients, and seniors were joined Tuesday by Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez to launch a massive effort to protect Californians' access to affordable health care.  Their action came as the Trump Administration and Republican-led Congress are launching an all-out assault on health security for millions of Americans, with plans to gut the Medicare guarantee for seniors and decimate the Affordable Care Act and Medi-Cal.  Health advocates promised to fight attacks on health care that that would force millions of Californians back into the ranks of the uninsured. 

Tuesday, November 22, Rally to Protect Our Healthcare

In 2017, a President and Congress will be sworn in who oppose federal funding for the healthcare services that employ our Sisters and Brothers, and that our families and communities rely on. They're proposing cuts that will hurt all of us.

Join us in a rally to protect healthcare!

Saturday, September 24th: Don't miss Income Inequality Day at the DTLA Film Fest!

Sisters & Brothers, 

Together, we've fought back against economic inequality.
 We've put all Californians on a path to better pay and workplace protections; we've stopped attacks on your job security and voice as city, county, and public service workers.

But there's still a lot of work to do. 

Everything You Need On Election Day in the IE, LA, and the Tri-Counties!

We've got candidate recommendations - whether you live in the Inland Empire, Los Angeles County, or the Tri-Counties region!

POLLS ARE OPEN FROM 8 AM TO 8 PM ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8: Click here to verify your polling location and to review your customized voter guide!

VOTING IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE! If anyone attempts to interfere with your right to vote, please call 1-866-OUR-VOTE, (1-866-687-8683) or visit right away!

Public workers have felt the brunt of multi-millionaires' greed, with cuts to key public services hurting us all, and understaffing across cities and counties forcing so many to work more for less. Voting is how we make sure working families have the opportunity to do better. Our union voice matters!


So show your power and make your voice heard at the ballot box! Vote for candidates who will stand up for working families and make sure your fellow union members vote, too!
