Healthcare Message From MFSA

Healthcare is a Basic Human Right!

Over the last several months you have called, emailed, marched and tweeted your faithful support for healthcare access for all people. Thank you for your partnership in justice-seeking.

Our work is not over. Now we need to mobilize people of faith for a robust open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act. We need you to raise awareness about Open Enrollment and drive traffic to HealthCare.gov, assisters, navigators, and brokers, and community enrollment events.

Budgets for advertising these open enrollment periods have been drastically cut from 100 million dollars to ten million dollars, and the enrollment period has been reduced. This puts critical life-giving healthcare access in jeopardy for millions. We need people of faith and to educate our communities.

Here are some tangible ways you can help us get the word out!

The Interfaith Healthcare Coalition of which MFSA is a partner created this toolkit to provide strategies and templates for use in outreach to media and your community in order to raise awareness about Open Enrollment and drive traffic to HealthCare.gov, assisters, navigators, and brokers, and community enrollment events.
