Hello -- Thanks for registering for the Obamacare Campaign Webinar this past Thursday. As promised, I wanted to provide a recap with the resources you need to plan your earned media events for this weekend! Overview We know that repealing Obamacare is callous and irresponsible and will be a catastrophe for millions of American families -- 32 million people across the country would lose their health insurance and everyone, no matter if they bought their insurance on an exchange or have it through their employer, would see key protections taken away. The law is working, and we won’t let it be rolled back without a fight. Our next weekend of action is January 28-30. OFA volunteers across the country will write letters to the editor, conduct signature drives, and host earned media events to show our elected leaders and communities the real impact of Obamacare repeal. I’ve included a PDF version of the powerpoint from the call and a link to toolkits that will guide you through writing a letter to the editor, collecting signatures, and hosting an earned media event. If you were not able to join the call, review these materials and let us know if you have any questions. 1) Earned Media Obamacare Webinar Click here to access the powerpoint slides from the call <drive.google.com/open 2) 2017 Action Toolkits Click here to access the 2017 Action Toolkits to help you organize your events <drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B20GGmJZO3pXYmUydHZ3NE9lQkE> 3) Campaign Materials and Host Guide Click here to access the weekend of action host guide <drive.google.com/file/d/0B20GGmJZO3pXN1d1ZG42b3BsazQ/view>, which includes messaging guidance, the Protect Obamacare petition sheet, and commit cards.

Overview

We know that repealing Obamacare is callous and irresponsible and will be a catastrophe for millions of American families -- 32 million people across the country would lose their health insurance and everyone, no matter if they bought their insurance on an exchange or have it through their employer, would see key protections taken away. The law is working, and we won’t let it be rolled back without a fight.


Our next weekend of action is January 28-30. OFA volunteers across the country will write letters to the editor, conduct signature drives, and host earned media events to show our elected leaders and communities the real impact of Obamacare repeal.


I’ve included a PDF version of the powerpoint from the call and a link to toolkits that will guide you through writing a letter to the editor, collecting signatures, and hosting an earned media event. If you were not able to join the call, review these materials and let us know if you have any questions.
