Since 1993, the League of Women Voters of the United States has actively supported healthcare 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 rollout 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 healthcare for 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 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Thelma Terry Room at Virginia Avenue Park, 2200 Virginia Ave. To R.S.V.P. contact Ben Tolksdorf at (310) 450-2191, ext. 234 or btolksdorf@wfhcenter.org

We hope to see many of our community members there.
