“On the National Day of Action to protect the Affordable Care Act, I was pleased to meet with a diverse, energetic group of people in Southern Maryland that is becoming more involved in government and politics,” said Congressman Hoyer. “Repealing the Affordable Care Act without a plan to replace it will have a devastating impact on Marylanders—347,000 would lose health coverage, including 60,000 children, and many families could see their health costs skyrocket. I thank Together We Will for attending the Women’s March on Washington and looking for additional opportunities to get involved, and I look forward to working together to educate the community about what is at stake if the ACA is repealed and advocate for policies that will ensure a stronger future for all of us.”
Together We Will – Southern Maryland is a civic engagement group that was established following the 2016 election and has grown to approximately 2,200 members, many of whom have not been previously involved in politics and government. The group aims to support, engage, and change their community through informing others and taking action on local, state, and federal levels of government.
