This week, we had a brief moment of relief — the Senate backed off from holding a vote before the July 4th recess on their devastating legislation that would cost 22 million people their health insurance.
But the fight is far from over. They still plan to bring forward the legislation next month, and they are talking about making the bill even more draconian to get holdout conservative Senators on board. We must keep up the pressure!
Please, take action to stop this bill and #SaveACA — and with it, thousands of lives.
Contact your legislator and tell them to vote against the Senate health care bill, and sign our petition below.

LGBT people are more than twice as likely as the general population to be uninsured — and if Republicans repeal the ACA, that number will get a lot worse. Transgender and gender nonconforming communities need the ACA to protect ourselves and our families.
