Planned Parenthood in the Community to Get Folks Signed Up for Health Care
Obamacare is the most significant reform of our health care system since the advent of Medicare. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, 47 million women will have access to preventive care with zero copays. It’s just a matter of getting the word out to counter the misinformation.
Last week alone, our organizers held 146 enrollment events bringing our total event numbers to 1,115 events and 9,260 attendees. We held 181 enrollment events with our Get-Out-The-Enrollment (GOTE) push. And we’re now routinely knocking on more than 20,000 doors a day. That’s added up to over 1.5million doors knocked in the last three months, and we’ve had 300,000 conversations about health insurance.
Watch our organizers at work and some who now have health insurance for the first time in years. It’s inspiring. Really.
