Last week, leaders from more than 100 institutions statewide came together on a virtual assembly put on by Working Together Mississippi to launch the new We Care Mississippi campaign in support of healthcare reform for Mississippi.
In the aftermath of the Covid pandemic, as it rolls across Mississippi and puts essential workers - some of whom have no access to healthcare at all - at heightened risk of illness, this conversation is more important than ever.
We are supporting the passage and implementation of the Mississippi Cares plan, as proposed by the Mississippi Hospital Association. This would bring healthcare to more than 300,000 currently uninsured Mississippians who are currently uninsured, at no cost to the state or taxpayers.
In the near future, we will have a lot of announcements about this. But for right now, here are two tangible ways you can be involved:
- Ask your State legislators to pass legislation to approve the Mississippi Cares Plan by calling them and writing emails to them.
You can find your state legislator’s name and contact information by going to this link and entering your address. Sample language for your letters, emails, and calls can be found here. Of course, you would put this in your own words.
- We need assistance with our media and promotions team, to help us get the word out. If you want to learn more about how you can help us do that, just send us an email to info@WorkingTogetherMississippi.org with your contact information and we will get back to you.
