Our Future, Our Health: Launching a Vision for 2020

Join Hoosiers from across the state to launch an agenda for a brighter future! Hoosier Action is organizing a massive statewide summit one year out from the 2020 elections. This is a vital moment for us to come together around the issues that impact our lives, to build hope and solidarity, and to ask our public officials to be our champions.


We are putting our values into action and joining together across racial differences to fight for an Indiana where we all can succeed. Hoosiers work hard for our families and take care of our neighbors. Hoosier families deserve to have healthy pregnancies and babies, a safe place to live, and quality healthcare. It’s time for Indiana to invest in our children, so that our state can have a bright future!

Tell Senator Todd Young: Lower Rx Prices Now!

  • 251 North Illinois Street Indianapolis, IN, 46204 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

No matter where people live, what they look like, or what’s in their wallets, at some point everyone is going to get sick and need prescription medicine to feel better. For diabetic Hoosiers and folks with other chronic conditions, daily medication is required to stay alive. 

Drug corporations and their powerful Pharma lobbyists are standing in the way of our health and economic security. 

Pharmaceutical giants dramatically jack up prices to boost profits, forcing Hoosiers to make stark choices between their medicine and other basic necessities. Everyday Hoosiers often go without treatment or go into debt or watch loved ones suffer without the drugs they need to get better.  

It’s time to stand up to Big Pharma and fix this broken system. We will deliver to Senator Young our petition demanding that he take action to address the prescription drug pricing crisis, and then hold a press conference afterward.

Save Hoosier Healthcare Rally
Jul

Save Hoosier Healthcare Rally

On July 1st, Indiana will begin a dangerous new experiment with Medicaid/HIP: unnecessary and burdensome new reporting requirements. Starting in 2020, tens of thousands of Hoosiers will lose their healthcare because of these new changes.

And while we get sicker, someone’s getting richer. These new requirements are being run by companies that profit by making the system harder for Hoosiers. Insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, and other mega-corporations all make money by withholding care from us.

Join us on July 1st to demand that the Governor stop this cruel program before Hoosiers get hurt. We deserve a healthcare system that puts people before profit. The time is now: show up and demand that Indiana do better.

Register here.

Save Hoosier Healthcare Campaign Launch

Save Hoosier Healthcare Campaign Launch

Every Hoosier has struggled to navigate our healthcare system to get the care we need. Too many of us have to choose between paying for prescriptions or medical bills or our utilities. Doctors, patients, and caregivers all have to deal with a confusing and unforgiving bureaucracy in order to provide and receive care. And it’s about to get worse for all of us: unnecessary and burdensome new reporting requirements will kick thousands of Hoosiers off their healthcare next year if we don’t do something about it.

Hoosiers' healthcare is being run for profit, not for the people. Insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, and other mega-corporations profit by withholding care from us. They’re getting richer, while we get sicker.

It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s time to take a stand and take back our power. Join Hoosier Action, Medicare for All Indiana (formerly HCHP), and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard on May 29th at the Monroe County Public Library at 6:30 pm to launch our campaign to Save Hoosier Healthcare!
