Sign-On to Support Tri-Caucus Health Equity Efforts!

Please support health equity efforts by signing your organization on to the letter below! This letter was written to support the re-introduction of the Health Equity and Accountability Act (HEAA). The entire Viral Hepatitis and Liver Cancer Control and Prevention Act is among the many provisions outlining ways to work towards the elimination of health disparities within the HEAA. It is vital that we, as organizations that want to promote and sustain viral hepatitis efforts, voice our support.

We hope that your organization will sign-on to the letter (link below) to support Congressional Tri-Caucus’ leadership to eliminate health disparities for racial and ethnic minorities, for the subpopulations that face additional barriers based on factors including, but not limited to, immigration status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and limited English proficiency. Also, please distribute this letter within your networks as we would greatly appreciate a strong showing of support from the community for Tri-Caucus’ efforts to re-introduce this important legislation.

***The letter is open to endorsement by local, state, and national organizations. The deadline is 5:00 PM ET on Wednesday, September 4.

Sign-on by filling out this Google form.
