Health Care Reform Leadership Training for Faith Community and Communities of Color


Strong leaders are needed to speak out now about the development of an Illinois health insurance marketplace and expanding Medicaid, not cutting it.  

The Campaign for Better Health Care's Faith Caucus is inviting you to become a partner because, as a leader in the faith community or community of color, you can bring back the information to your congregation and community so they can join the effort for the full implementation of the new health care law (Affordable Care Act).  Your commitment will be to attend the next five trainings (one per month, each 3 hrs) and to follow through by mobilizing your communities. 

These trainings will help prepare you for a more active role in the pursuit of affordable, accessible and quality health care for everyone.  The leadership training series topics will include Organizing 101, Affordable Care Act, Marketplace, fundraising, legislative advocacy, messaging, social media, community engagement, leadership development, communications and resource development.

The initial five trainings will be held in Chicago, but we are seeking funding to provide trainings statewide.

Help make a difference in shaping our healthcare and the healthcare of those who need you to take action.
