Lessons Learned in the Fight for Medicaid Expansion

Get Out the Vote: Faith-filled voting

This session explores the importance of Medicaid Expansion for Texas and shows the impact that people of faith made during the last legislative session. It will look at current elections and the Build Back Better Bill pending in US Congress to show how you can impact the health of your community through health policy and advocacy.

Our faith calls us to participate in civic life. The heart of that is voting. Learn how you can build your knowledge and educate others about the current elections and how to reach out to your community in a non-partisan way to encourage voting.

We encourage you to bring a congregational team and explore multiple workshop tracks!
