CPD and SEIU Take Action in Washington D.C.

As frustration grows in all corners of the country over plans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, concerned Americans took the fight directly to the Capitol to confront their elected officials. On Tuesday, January 31 constituents—including local activists, faith leaders, nurses and home care workers mounted a series of protests through Capitol office buildings—filling hallways, cafeterias, and member offices—in an effort to force Senators to respond to constituents whose health care they are threatening to dismantle.

CPD partners, Ole from New Mexico, Make the Road PA, Texas Organizing Project and Arkansas Community Organization all took part in the demonstration, with CPD staff supporting with logistics and action coordination.
