Action Alert: Call your Senators Today to Vote No on Rep. Tom Price

The Senate will vote as early as tonight on Rep. Tom Price to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Price wants to limit federal Medicaid spending, dismantle the Affordable Care Act, and defund Planned Parenthood. He is also under scrutiny for ethics issues.
Why it Matters: Rep. Price advocates for cuts to Medicaid (MediCal in CA) and the Affordable Care Act that would result in 5 million Californians losing healthcare, a $20 billion state budget gap, and reduced access to mental health and health services for WestCoast’s children and families.
Action: Call Senators Harris and Feinstein to ask for their NO votes on Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services. Ask them to hold the vote until an ethics investigation is complete.
Share this information: Please feel free to circulate this Call To Action Form, and if you use Facebook, you can share the call to action from our page https://www.facebook.com/WestCoastChildrensClinic/

New Podcast Series

On November 29th, 2016, WestCoast Children’s Clinic hosted a panel to discuss how racism and misogyny drive child sex trafficking in the United States.

Today we’re releasing the first two of five podcasts from a recording of the evening. Please click through to listen to this important conversation with five national experts in the anti-trafficking movement.
