A group of outside organizations announced Friday they are forming a coalition called “Protect Our Care” to fight Republicans’ plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The members include health policy organizations like Families USA, as well civil rights groups, women’s groups and the union SEIU.

“The Protect Our Care Coalition will pool resources and work together to ensure people in America understand the damage of repealing the ACA,” the coalition said in a press release. “Congress should not take away the promise of future coverage without simultaneously voting on a plan that guarantees people will have health and financial security.”

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Center for Law and Social Policy
Community Catalyst, Doctors for America
