Chris Maddaloni

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.”

Here are the coalition members announced in the press release:

Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum Center for American Progress Center on Budget and Policy Priorities Center for Law and Social Policy Community Catalyst, Doctors for America Families USA, MomsRising NAACP National Council of La Raza National Health Law Program National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health National Partnership for Women & Families, National Urban League National Women’s Law Center SEIU Voices for Progress Young Invincibles
