Great graphic about how to run for the Democratic National Committee. Filings and petitions due April 3, so lace up your jogging shoes!

The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care sent out an action alert.

March 16 is National Call-In Day to protest planned Medicaid cuts. The SEIU provided a toll-free number for the calls.

1. Call (866)-426-2631
2. Enter your zip code and phone number
3. A person will answer--leave a brief message asking your Representative to vote against the AHCA, specifically because block-granting Medicaid will lead to cuts in funds available for nursing home and home care. The elderly and disabled cannot afford to pay out of pocket for this exorbitantly expensive care, so Medicaid cuts means that they will not be able to get the care they need.

Another mechanism for contacting legislators. Text "Resist" to 50409. The bot asks for information to determine whose constituent you are, and then creates "daily letters to Congress" based on the messages. The site says that Congressional staffers say that they receive--and read--Resistbot messages, and that (brief!) personal messages are more influential than form letters.

BTW I read about it in the latest issue of re:act, a consistently excellent publication that I recommend as a good use of your limited time. The URL is http://eepurl.com/cGyXNH, and if you have items to submit, they go to derek@reactletter.com.
