Trump's pick, Tom Price was confirmed as Secretary of Health & Human Services. Price is dangerous to women, families, and all working people. We'll show him, the HHS, and Donald Trump, that the US majority opposes their anti-woman policies and their plan to privatize Medicare!

- Free abortion & birth control for ALL women
- Free universal childcare
- National Health Care for all
- Paid parental leave
Bring signs, listen to speakers, and rally! Our voices will be heard! To RSVP, visit the facebook event.
Who is Tom Price?
As U.S. Representative for Georgia, Price was a tool of Big Pharma and the insurance industry. While in Congress he received hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions from companies that would benefit from his privatization agenda. His extreme positions put corporate profits before people; he wants to privatize Medicare, enriching his donors at the expense of the elderly and working families.
An outspoken critic of the Affordable Care Act, at HHS Price will likely reverse the rules that prevent insurers from charging women more money than men for the same health coverage. He has publically denied the fact that women have difficulty accessing birth control and will seek to repeal mandatory contraception coverage. If he succeeds in bringing down the ACA, it will end the requirement that insurance companies include maternity care in their plans on the individual market, causing women to pay more in premiums and out of pocket when they seek maternity care.
This is unacceptable!
