Faith in Public Life injected a strong moral voice in the movement to protect the life-saving care afforded to millions of Americans by the Affordable Care Act.
Working with coalition partners, impacted persons, and medical professionals, we held rallies in multiple states including Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Alaska and the District of Columbia to pressure moderate Republicans to save the ACA.
Over the course of three weeks, more than 40 moral leaders – including Rev. Jennifer Butler – were arrested as a result of nonviolent civil disobedience on Capitol Hill. Interfaith clergy worked diligently to defeat the immoral GOP health care repeal.
