Join Us to Build Power for Our Families
A Letter from Eveline Shen, Forward Together Action’s Board President
Dear Friends,With you by our side, we are creating a powerhouse by and for women of color, nonbinary people of color and Indigenous people. With your support and action, you will help us to:
- Fuel concrete policy wins for our families. In New Mexico, help us power the movement for quality, affordable healthcare as community leaders advocate for a Medicaid Buy-in bill. In Oregon, support the push for legislation to improve maternal and infant health outcomes in communities of color. With your support and action, we will organize our communities and hold elected officials accountable to ensure all our families get the support they need to thrive.
- Get out the vote. We’re undertaking intensive voter education and outreach ahead of the 2020 elections, including deep engagement with our base in New Mexico and Oregon. Your contribution sustains our work with partners in Colorado, Georgia and Virginia to create and share voting tools to encourage people to vote our values on key issues in our communities, including access to abortion.
We know that when our communities lead and lawmakers listen, we all win. Thank you for building power with us in 2020 and beyond.
