Let Her Decide Congressional Call-In Day: Postponed

Home Blog Let Her Decide Congressional Call-In Day: Postponed

Update 3/31/20:

Due to Coronavirus, the scheduled LHD Call-In has been postponed.  This was the activity highlighted in the recent Essential Advantage newsletter asking people to call their legislators to ask for support of The Breast Cancer Patient Equity Act, H.R. 1370/S. 562.  The original date referenced in the newsletter and our Facebook page was April 1st.  In the past week, we rescheduled for April 15th due to most Capitol buildings being closed through the end of March.  As of now, Capitol buildings are recommended to remain closed until May 1st.   We will continue to assess the situation and keep you posted for the new call-in date once established.   

What you can do: 

The next best thing to a call-in campaign is sending an email.  

Currently, most legislative staff members are working remotely.  Sending a message directly to a health policy staff member will be most effective.  Essentially Women can help connect you with the appropriate staff member.  Email Nikki at [email protected] and provide your legislator’s names.  Click here for assistance in finding legislators.

Update 3/20/20:

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to move the Let Her Decide Call-In day to April 15.

Want to participate but don't know how? Watch our upcoming webinar, Let Her Decide and Legislative Update on Tuesday, March 24.

The House of Representatives and Senate are both in session on April 1, 2020. Let’s make our voices heard and call our Senators and Representatives asking them to sign-on to support S. 562/H.R. 1370, the Breast Cancer Patient Equity Act. This isn’t an April Fool’s joke when we say that the breast is one of the only body parts not covered by Medicare as a custom prosthetic replacement! Women deserve to make the choice for themselves.
