Who We Are
40 Days for Health Reform is an effort from the faith community to make clear to Congress that quality, affordable health care for every American family is a moral priority for millions of people of faith.
Health care reform is far too important of an issue to let special interests hijack the debate with disruptions and distractions. 40 Days for Health Reform is moving the debate forward with a nationwide TV ad featuring local clergy and lay leaders
supporting reform, prayer rallies and in-district meetings
reaching over 100 Members of Congress, and a call-in webcast featuring President Obama and diverse faith leaders.
40 Days for Health Reform is led by PICO National Network
, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good
, Faith in Public Life
, and Faithful America
