Medicaid Expansion

Medicaid Expansion with Governor Cooper

Working people did this!

Down Home members were at the Governor’s mansion when Medicaid expansion was signed into law.

Of course, the reason they were there with the governor is because they had been a part of this fight every step of the way. For years, our members have marched, rallied, protested, lobbied and organized to get this legislation passed.

They did what everyone said was impossible in North Carolina… and they did it damn well. 

Watch and hear from Down Home members at the signing of  Medicaid Expansion in the clip below. 

We are so proud of all our members who fought tooth and nail for this victory, and we also  remember those who are not here with us. Thank you Lyn for your tireless advocacy and righteous fight. We wish for all the world you could have been here to see this finally pass.

You’ll always be a Down Homie and we are all thinking of you.
