ACTION ALERT: The Trump Administration has proposed rule changes around Title X funding, which will have a devastating effect on reproductive healthcare for low-income Vermonters.

Ten Title X clinics serve low income Vermonters with vital healthcare services including cancer screenings, HIV testing, and birth control. Changes to these rules would disproportionately impact teens, women, and low-income individuals.

Today, I was at Planned Parenthood in Colchester to call on Vermonters to voice their opinion and stand up to protect access to healthcare.

I encourage all Vermonters to speak out and have their voices heard. Click below by July 31st to share your thoughts with HHS!

Thank you to Tori Lloyd and her team for having me!
