Equitas Health Votes

Midterms 2018 – Too Important to Sit Out

What’s at Stake?

As you know, this year we’re electing officials at the state, local, and federal level who will implement policies that directly impact the work Equitas Health does and the communities we serve.

Equitas Health understands how important this—and future—elections are and we believe that in order to make good policy, we have to elect good policy makers. We believe in providing care for all, but we can’t do that if access to affordable health is cut off.

This year, health care is on the ballot.

Women’s reproductive rights are on the ballot.

Our voting rights and civil rights are on the ballot.

Maintaining legal protections for equality and dignity for the LGBTQ community is on the ballot.

Criminal justice issues are on the ballot.

Voting is perhaps our most fundamental right as Americans. But the power of our vote is wasted unless we exercise it. So how do we use this power? By showing up at the voting booth. Our voices are only as strong as our presence at the polls—and we simply cannot afford to sit 2018 out.
