Tell Gov. Abbott: Expand Medicaid to save our lives and protect our hospitals | Take Action Newsletter

Take Action

Call Gov. Abbott TODAY and urge him to expand Medicaid to save our lives and protect our hospitals

Please call him using this patch-through number: 1-877-880-6704 with the following message:

Please expand Medicaid for the Texans who are uninsured and need healthcare, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. When any one of us can’t get the care we need, all of us are at risk for infection, complications, and even death. Our health depends on the health of the person next to us, and the person next to them. Please expand Medicaid.

DOUBLE WIN: Support the USPS and the Indivisible Rosedale Huddle

Action from Indivisible Rosedale Huddle

The United States Postal Service is in trouble and buying stamps is a way to help them. Coincidentally, Indivisible Rosedale Huddle needs stamps for our TX10 GOTV postcard writing project. Buying postcard stamps and donating them to the project could help both at the same time.

Your options:

  1. Buy postcard stamps and have them mailed directly to us:

Rosedale Huddle
4613 Shoalwood Ave
Austin, TX 78756

(This will be recorded as a donation to the Rosedale Huddle PAC)

  1. Donate money to the Rosedale Huddle directly, and we will use your donation to buy postcard stamps from USPS. All donations made between now and July 1st will be used for stamp purchases.
  2. Buy postcard stamps and mail stamps and receipt to the address above. And we still need postcards written! We are still about 3,000 postcards short of our goal so KEEP WRITING!

ICYMI: Last Week’s Actions

Write a letter to Greg Abbott demanding vote-by-mail in Texas

  • Update: District Court Judge Tim Sulak signed an order saying all Texans can now request a mail ballot citing fear of coronavirus as a “disability” preventing in-person voting. This is the current law of the land but will surely be challenged. (It doesn’t hurt to keep sending letters, since Abbott/Paxton will continue to fight to disenfranchise you.)
  • Download and print a vote-by-mail application or request one here.

Write to your reps to save the USPS <—This is still important!
