Send Us Your Story

Has the Affordable Care Act helped you or someone you know? What about Medicaid? Congress is currently debating whether to repeal the ACA and whether to significantly alter or scale back Medicaid, which
helps millions of Americans get needed care. Maybe the ACA or Medicaid have helped you – maybe they have helped someone you know. A loved one, a relative, a friend, a coworker, a client.

The Coalition on Human Needs is collecting stories from ordinary Americans who count on these important programs. We will gather the most compelling stories and share them with members of Congress, allies and the media. We want to hear from you. Send us your story!
