Defend the ACA Press Conference
October 26, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am
On Monday, the day of Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation in the Senate, we will gather at Pack Square Park in front of City Hall, 70 Court Plaza in downtown Asheville, for a press conference to Defend the Affordable Care Act.
The impact of Coney Barrett’s confirmation on the ACA could be severe. She has previously criticized the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court will be hearing a case on the ACA in November and a shift in the Supreme Court majority could potentially lead to the end of the Affordable Care Act, leaving millions without access to healthcare. Senator Thom Tillis voted to push this nomination forward in committee and has voted repeatedly to take away healthcare from North Carolinians.
This event is being organized by the North Carolina AIDS Action Network and Indivisible Asheville/WNC, and will feature speakers who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act, as well as health care experts.
