Get Involved Today!

Our community goes to the State Capitol, talks to the legislators and influences the process of policy making on health care issues.

We also hold meeting with state administrators (i.e.the Department of Social Services) to address  issues of concern.

Our members understand and believe the words of social justice artist Ricardo Levin Morales, who said, “Nothing about us, without us, is for us.” and actively participate in civic engagement year round to ensure that the laws that directly affect us, include us, and that our voices and our needs and demands are heard.

HUSKY A RALLY


One parent. Two jobs. Three children.

On April 17, 2013 Caring Families Coalition and other statewide organizations rallied for 37,500 Husky A parents who were in danger of losing medical coverage under the Governor’s proposed budget. The rally was aimed at state legislators asking them to reject the Governor’s proposal and stand up for low-income working families.

The rally was largely responsible for the state legislature restoring HUSKY A benefits in the final budget.
