We are advocates and activists, using our skill to call upon others to join us in making the changes we believe are critical for health care for everybody.
Our advocacy work is at all levels – grassroots, legislative and administrative. Sometimes that means visibility for our issues at the state capital, bringing in other activists to work with us. Sometimes advocacy means convening and coordinating other advocates and activists to work together towards an important goal.
Sometimes advocating means testifying at the legislature and discussing important health care issues with legislators. Sometimes advocacy means speaking up at the Connecticut Insurance Department, the Health Care Cabinet or Access Health CT. We do all this and more, together with you.
Advocacy also includes elevating stories. Listening to real people’s stories – their struggle to get the care they need and can afford – is a priority. The shortfalls in our health care system are brought to life by these stories. They ground our policy advocacy and ignite the call for action.
