Act Now

Update: December 10, 2017

Join in tomorrow's national disability call in day!  The House and Senate conference committee are meeting this week to reconcile the 2 versions of the tax bill they passed.  That means that every harmful provision in either bill is on the table.  It's absolutely essential that your Senators and Representatives hear from you now!  We need everyone to call, write, engage in social media, and attend events.  Here is a list of key targets in the Senate and House.  With your advocacy, we still have a chance to stop this bill!

Join the National Call-In Day: No Tax on Disability! 

Let your Senators know how harmful the tax bill will be to people with disabilities.  Please call your representatives and encourage your friends and family to join you.  Let your Senators know that cuts to the revenue necessary to fund Medicaid put individuals with disabilities at risk of losing essential services that allow them to live and work in the community. This cannot happenIf you are a person with a disability or family member, tell your story!

Call the main Capitol line at: (202) 224-3121 (You’ll be directed to an operator at the Capitol switchboard who can direct you to both of your senators.)

If you’re nervous or not sure what to say, get started with this easy script.
