3.1. Families USA Advocacy Tools

This section of the Families USA Web site features guides, tools and resources for grass roots advocacy.

Families USA, a leading national, non-partisan voice for health care consumers, is dedicated to achieving high-quality, affordable health care and improved health for all. Our work is driven by and centered around four pillars: value, equity, coverage and people’s experience. We view these focus areas — and the various issues unique to each area — as the cornerstones of America’s health care system.

Public policy analysis that is rooted in Hill and administration experience, movement-building advocacy, and collaboration with partners are deep-rooted hallmarks of our work. In turn, our work promotes a health system that protects consumers’ financial security as much as it does their health care security.

As we advance our mission by combining policy expertise and partnerships with community, state, and national leaders, we forge transformational solutions that improve the health and health care of our nation’s families and speak to the values we all have in common.

Our ability to engage a broad network of stakeholders representing consumers, the health care sector, and the business sector is the mark of our success, as is our history of working with leaders from both sides of the aisle to tackle the health care problems facing the nation. Congress, federal agencies, and congressional staff rely on our sophisticated, expert advice to understand current policy and to develop new ideas.

We have deep, longstanding relationships with a diverse cadre of consumer leaders, advocates, and partner organizations in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Families USA works with a core of consumer leaders and grassroots activists in all 50 states. These relationships cut across “red states”, “blue states” and “purple states” as well as rural and urban communities. Families USA also has a rich history in building coalitions and executing campaigns with a range of national partners.

We do not stand alone in our work. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the families whose voices we take great privilege in lifting. In that way, millions are part of our mission, too.
