AHCA SOUP-ER PROTEST /Food Drive

$920 of $1,000 goal

Kristen Pettit  BROOKLYN, NY
NY District 11 is planning a protest of our representative's support for AHCA, The American Healthcare Act, or TRUMPCARE. 

TRUMPCARE would leave 24 million Americans with little more healthcare than a can of chicken soup. It would drain the bank accounts of seniors and the currently ill. It would gut Medicaid, upon which many seniors in our community rely.

The constituents of District 11 deserve more. We plan to let Dan Donovan know this by delivering the message: CHICKEN SOUP IS NOT A HEALTHCARE PLAN. 

We are collecting money for cans of soup, which we will be delivering to Donovan's office to make this point. We hope to buy 1,000 cans of soup which will subesquently be donated to a District 11 food pantry.  

$1= 1 can of soup. Please help us buy as many as we can! Thank you.

IMPORTANT UPDATE!! DAN DONOVAN HAS ANNOUNCED HE WILL VOTE "NO" ON THE ACHA!

This is a huge victory for our district and our neighbors who took to the streets to bring their concerns to their representative. The pressure was relentless! We are so inspired by this victory!

Due to this development the organizers of this action and I have decided to hold our soup delivery for the next moment of battle over healthcare on the federal level. We know this WILL come up again, and we WILL be watching Donovan to ensure he votes in the best interest of his constituents.

Our commitment to this action remains total. We are excited to use this symbol in its most effective way AND to make this food donation to the hungry and needy in our area. We will continue to update you as the battle around healthcare rages on.

If you would like your donation refunded, GoFundMe has an option for doing just that. Please let us know and we will request the refund ASAP. Otherwise, we will hold the money for our eventual delivery.

Thank you for your support!
Sincerely,

Kristen Pettit
Chairperson, Bay Ridge Democrats Action Committee

You should definitely hold off until the next vote comes around. It looks like Trumpcare won't pass, and we can't let Donovan off the hook on the next botched repeal/replace effort, either. Great job, team. Keep my cash. :-)
