Completed
One-Time Action

Health and Education

Advocate for healthcare equality

Goal: Write at least one elected representative advocating for action to increase healthcare equality for women, people of color, queer people, and gender-nonconforming people. I chose this goal because it seemed to fit alongside the other goals in this category, and I wanted to make sure it existed as an option. Healthcare equity is a crucial issue and major ongoing crisis, and is often brushed aside as either nonexistent or too big a problem to be solved.
