Sign The Petition to Expand Medicaid and Cover ALL Virginians

At the Pasta Supper on March 15, Delegate David Toscano told us about two challenges related to Medicaid expansion in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and how we can all help:
Some Democratic House members from Northern Virginia believe they can generate more signatures on their petition supporting General Assembly action to close the coverage gap than any place in the state. This is the friendly challenge.
