National Day of Action to Support Community Health Centers on Tuesday February 6

Posted 10 months ago by Laura Worby

Funding for Federally Qualified Health Centers has been held up in the Federal budget negotiations, threatening access to health care for 9 million patients. This coming Tuesday, February 6, Health Center Advocates are calling on Congress to fix the health center funding cliff as part of the next legislative vehicle, which must be passed by Thursday, February 8th, 2018. 

The action is simple - on Tuesday, we are asking all Health Center Advocates to wear red as part of the Red Alert for Health Centers - in solidarity with health centers and the patients they serve, to demand urgent action to fix the health center funding cliff. Take a picture of this simple demonstration of support and post it to Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn with the hashtag #RedAlert4CHCs.
