Keep your eye on the prize! That was the constant refrain during the 50's and 60's as African-Americans and other minorities struggled for equal opportunity, freedom, and the American Dream. Our rich history of courage, determination and dignity can be seen in the memorable March on Washington in 1963, and the Selma to Montgomery March of 1965 in the face of great hostility. The great moments of our history are countless. We enjoy countless benefits today because of the courage and determination of 'OUR FOREFATHERS & MOTHERS.'

Today, African-Americans and other minorities are faced with the civil rights issue of the 21st century - healthcare discrimination.  In 2003, African Americans, Hispanics and Asian Americans comprised 29 percent of the population but represented the majority (52 the 45 million individuals who were un-insured year round. This is a CALL TO ACTION!

Many in congress are striving to return to an America of the "haves and have-nots," the rich and the disenfranchised, and stagnation of the voice of the masses by denial of the right to vote!

There is a bitter, vindictive effort afoot by some members in congress and their wealthy allies to dismantle and destroy the Affordable Healthcare Act - a law that would give insurance opportunities and healthcare to millions. We have a Supreme Court that's intent on loosening the reins on ultra-conservative states who want to disenfranchise millions by nullifying the Voting Rights Act of 1964. We cannot sit! We cannot rest on the laurels of yester-year! Our future is being dismanted right before our very eyes!

Let your voice be heard in the fight for affordable and accessible healthcare for all. Join the 'Fight of the Century.' Let your Representatives and Senators know that you support the Affordable Healthcare Act!!
