November 15th was National "Thanks, Birth Control" Day. Women and families, who rely on access to affordable birth control, rallied at #HandsOffMyBC events outside of U.S. Health and Human Services offices in five cities: Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, Washington, D.C. and Kansas City, MO. Attendees united in solidarity with fellow Americans hurt by President Trump’s dangerous policies and demanded that this administration stop their dangerous attacks on Americans’ reproductive health decisions.
Indivisible KC joined the ACLU of Missouri, ACLU of Kansas, ACLU KU (student chapter), Planned Parenthood Great Plains, NARAL Pro-Choice of Missouri, and Indivisible LFK to denounce President Trump’s executive order that allows employers to remove birth control coverage from their health insurance plans on the basis of religious or moral objection. Thank you to everyone who came out to the event! And ... extra special thanks go out to the Handmaids for braving the chilly winds, our emcee for leading us in several rousing chants, and our panel of inspiring speakers.

9/26: Senator Moran's office — Olathe, Kansas

Indivisible LFK, and Indivisible IKC
Senator Moran told us back in July if a healthcare bill isn't good for Kansas, it isn't good for him and he wouldn't vote for it. So we staged a rally to hold him to his words and ask him to vote NO on the Graham-Cassidy bill. But by midday on the 26th, Senator McConnell announced that Republicans would not move ahead with a vote on the latest plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Therefore, our event was equal parts rally and celebration as well as an opportunity to thank everyone for their good work and remind them to stay engaged. ☂️❤️🇺🇸

On Friday morning, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited Kansas City Academy, a local private school known for its welcoming, inclusive education environment. A broad coalition of organizations (American Federation of Teachers Local 691, Heartland Alliance for Progress, Our Revolution KC, MORE2, Indivisible KC, and the Missouri Democratic Party Progressive Caucus) rallied in support of a strong, well-funded, and inclusive public education system. Brief speeches highlighted strengths in educational diversity around the Kansas City metro and offered alternatives to the abrupt and draconian policy changes proposed by Ms. DeVos. It was a privilege to welcome The Reverand Dr. Rodney E. Williams, President of the Kansas City, MO Chapter of the NAACP and Pastor of Swope Parkway United Christian Church, as our closing speaker.

"Earlier this year, the Save My Care bus traveled to over 50 cities and 15,000 miles to shine a light on how the dangerous Republican healthcare plan would devastate the health and wellbeing of Americans from coast to coast. This August recess, the bus is back to tell the stories of the millions of Americans whose lives are on the line when politics trump people."

On Tuesday, July 18th, before Noon, the Senate planned to take the important Motion to Proceed (MTP) vote to allow the bill to go to the floor for debate. Kansas residents joined us to ask Senator Moran to vote NO on this motion. Senator Moran said that he wouldn't support a bill that didn't meet these four criteria and we planned to hold him to his word.
2. Must protect rural health care
3. Medicaid should sufficiently cover services
4. Shouldn't stifle job growth

that Senator Blunt protect our health care and “keep us covered!”
On June 28th we held a rally and invited residents to join us outside Senator Moran’s office. We had various health organizations and experts speak to how the BCRA will affect Kansas. We will also had some of Senator Moran’s constituents share personal stories of how the ACA has, in fact, helped them and their families and what will likely happen if the Senate bill becomes law.
Before the Senate bill was released, Jerry Moran told a town hall that he would not have voted for the House bill. "I want to see what the health care bill is," he told the crowd on June 12. More recently, the Senator said, “If this bill isn’t good for Kansas, it isn’t good for me.” The BCRA is quite similar to the House bill, AHCA, which he criticized. We asked Senator Moran to vote NO.
