Please join the Healthcare for All Virginians Coalition in Richmond to urge our lawmakers to close the coverage gap in Virginia. Strong opposition continues in the General Assembly and HAV coalition advocacy is critical again this year.

It is important that you come to discuss this important issue with your local legislators. Many in the General Assembly have adopted a “Just say No” mentality – with your help we can get the majority to to say “YES!”
 
When you register, you will receive additional information to help you get ready for this day and to use during your legislative office visits.

For more information about HAV Advocacy Day please contact: Karen Cameron, Director, Virginia Consumer Voices for Healthcare (www.vaconsumervoices.org) at 804-512-8692 and/or karen@vaconsumervoices.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!
