Family Advocates Joined UUSJ Advocacy Corps on the Hill

Family advocates and the UUSJ Advocacy Corps visited US Senate offices on April 11 to discuss healthcare reform, specifically Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which together cover one in three American children. Twelve Advocacy Corps members from six congregations, and Rev. Archene Turner and families from Cedar Lane UUC, visited 50 Senate offices and delivered some of the 407 letters that came from congregations around the country for the UUSJ/UU Just Economic Community conference, Reversing Inequality: Healthcare Justice is a UU Value.
