April 1st Meeting Agenda

What is MoveOn.org?

MoveOn is the largest independent, progressive, digitally-connected organizing group in the United States. Launched in 1998, MoveOn pioneered online organizing and advocacy techniques that have become standard in politics, nonprofits, and industry in the U.S. and worldwide. We combine rapid-response political campaigning with

deep analysis, rigorous data science and testing, and a culture of grassroots member listening and participation that allows us to consistently and quickly identify opportunities for progressive change–and mobilize millions of members to seize them. MoveOn members step up as leaders by using the MoveOn Petitions DIY organizing platform to create their own petitions and campaigns to drive social change.

FOOTHILLS RISING

“Welcome to Foothills Rising, the group formerly known as the Motherlode Organizing Group! We reside in the Calaveras, Amador and Tuolumne County region of California’s Motherlode region. We are here to build democracy in a rural conservative region. Presently, in Amador and Calaveras counties, we are in the minority position within a majority rules system, which leads many people to think there is nothing they can do. And, often times, they’re right.”

Health Care: We believe that health care is a human right.

“It’s clear every Republican prediction about Obamacare was wrong. Just ask the millions of Americans who now have access to health care.”
U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer

California Democrats believe that health care is a human right not a privilege, yet for too long families have had to make the decision between medicine and food. California Democrats supported the passage of the Affordable Care Act, which has enabled millions of Californians to have quality, affordable care for the first time. And we are fighting Republican efforts to take away health care from Americans.

  • We are holding health insurers and providers accountable for the quality of care and for protecting the privacy of Californians’ health records.
  • We are working to reduce barriers to small business to offer health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, to improve employee health and fuel our economy.
  • California Democrats expanded access to safe family planning options for women in underserved rural areas. We promote health care for women and girls including pre-natal, peri-natal, well-baby care and comprehensive immunization services and full reproductive health services that respects a woman’s right to choose.
  • California Democrats are expanding health coverage for children regardless of their immigration status – because children shouldn’t be a casualty of our nation’s broken immigration system.

Dems Lead: More than 1.4 million previously uninsured Californians obtained health care in 2014 and 2015 through Covered California, created by the Affordable Care Act.
