Why Advocacy Matters


Do you know someone with a pre-existing condition who was finally able to enroll in health coverage when insurance companies could no longer deny them due to health status? Or someone who enrolled in health insurance for the first time because they could access tax credits through the health insurance marketplace?

Many consumer protections that help our friends, family, and community members get the health care they need are the direct result of policy change—change that would not have occurred without advocacy. As a nonprofit consumer health advocacy organization, Georgians for a Healthy Future is committed to advocating on behalf of health care consumers, but we can’t do it alone.

If you care about a healthy future for all Georgians, we need your voice. And if you’re looking to get involved but don’t know where to start, we have tools, resources, and information to help you speak out on what you care about.
