The People’s Filibuster rally originally scheduled for Tuesday, July 18 has been canceled. Over the weekend, Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced a delay on the vote on the Better Care Reconciliation Act.

While the Senate won’t vote this week, they are still working on this legislation that will drastically cut and cap the Medicaid program, harming the home and community based services people with intellectual and developmental disabilities rely on to live independent lives.

Your participation in this fight is critical.

Instead of joining us at a rally tomorrow, you can:

Send The Arc a letter to your Senators about why Medicaid matters to you. The Arc’s staff will hand deliver your letter to your Senators if you submit by midnight, Wednesday July 19. Instructions

Call your Senators to express opposition to Medicaid cuts. Every call counts, your Senators need to hear from you.

Thank you for your ongoing efforts to save Medicaid!
