League Of Women Voters To Host Affordable Care Act Workshop In Santa Monica

Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor,

Since 1993, the League of Women Voters of the United States has actively supported health care reform, including those policies which promote access to a basic level of quality care at an affordable cost to all U.S. residents.

While the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) clearly has had its problems, the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica wants to help our community's residents take advantage of the law.

In 2010, two decades of League advocacy to ensure access to health care of all Americans bore fruit at the national level when the ACA was signed into law.

The League of Women Voters of Santa Monica wants to see that its provisions extend to all of our city's eligible residents.

That's why we're co-sponsoring an informational meeting this Saturday at Virginia Avenue Park, which will feature a workshop by the Westside Family Health Center, including personalized enrollment assistance in English and Spanish.

This outreach event will take place Saturday morning, Nov. 9 from 8 am to 11 am in the Thelma Terry Room at Virginia Avenue Park, 2200 Virginia Avenue.

To RSVP contact Ben Tolksdorf at 310.450.2191, ext. 234 or btolksdorf@wfhcenter.org

We hope to see many of our community members there.

Sincerely,

Ann K. Williams

President

League of Women Voters of Santa Monica
