NASW has signed on to support the platform of Divided We Fail, a new coalition promoting access to health care and long-term financial stability for all Americans.
AARP, Business Roundtable, and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) formed the coalition in January 2007 “to amplify the message that obtaining health and long-term financial security is vital for all Americans,” the group’s materials state. The campaign seeks to engage voters across the nation in discussion of these crucial issues and to bring them to the forefront of candidates and elected officials in the 2008 elections and beyond. Joined by other organizations and grassroots advocates, Divided We Fail will promote bipartisan solutions to the problems of unaffordable health care and financial insecurity.
