Join Us as we Urge Congress to Protect Our Care

CWDA is collecting stories from county human services agency staff, our statewide and community partners and clients as part of our collective effort to educate congressional representatives, local policymakers and the public on the tremendous and numerous benefits the Affordable Care Act, particularly the expansion of Medi-Cal eligibility, has had in our communities. These stories will help us explain why the repeal efforts Congress is currently undertaking at the federal level would be devastating not only to the people we serve but also to local county economies.
