Why We Support  Dr. Al Gross and Alyse Galvin for Congress

The impact of the current leadership's crusade against health care is glaringly evident as the COVID-19 pandemic puts the health and livelihoods of Alaskans at risk. It’s time for a change. We need leaders who tell the truth, chose people over politics and work to increase access to health care and not restrict it.

Access to reproductive health care and information, the Affordable Care Act, our economic recovery, and taking control of this virus are on the line this November.

Dr. Al Gross and Alyse Galvin know how important access to a full range of reproductive health care is and will ensure the needs of our region are met.

Dr. Al Gross

Dr. Gross’ experience as a physician means he understands the challenges people in Alaska face when trying to access the health care they need. Those patients, and all people in Alaska, need a champion like Al Gross to fight for their access to care and show true leadership in Congress.

  • Dr. Gross wants to create a public option for insurance coverage; this would reduce health care costs and increase the number of Alaskans who are covered, including those who lost their jobs because of COVID. 

    • A public option would improve access to sexual and reproductive health and help advance health equity, helping to make sure everyone is covered regardless of their employment status or income.

  • Dr. Gross also stands against the Pebble Mine project because he knows all people should be able to live in a safe and healthy environment. Pebble Mine, which would poison the waters of Bristol Bay, is fundamentally an act of reproductive oppression.

  • Dr. Gross believes that the more than 30 Alaska Native Tribes have survived and thrived on the fishing in Bristol Bay - they have the right to know that the basis for their way of life is secure and free from contamination.

Alyse Galvin

Alyse Galvin is committed to ensuring people have affordable, quality access to sexual and reproductive health services. 

  • Galvin wants to fight against expensive medical bills and inaccessible health care, including reproductive health care.

    • During her second pregnancy, she worried medical bills from her pregnancy would cause her family to go bankrupt. She knows that everyone deserves quality, comprehensive reproductive and maternal health care without financial strain and without worrying about their ability to pay.

  • Galvin will work to make health care affordable for families by lowering prescription costs, ending surprise medical bills, and expanding services available before deductibles.

  • Galvin advocates for sexual assault survivors because as a young adult she witnessed family members struggle with addiction and intimate partner violence and abuse. Galvin will fight for prevention and treatment programs in Alaska and will push for an increase in much-needed behavioral health professionals across the state.

The public is focused on two public health crises — COVID-19 and systemic racism — and together, it is crystal clear what is at stake in this election.
