“Growing up, my parents used to tell me, ‘A closed mouth doesn’t get fed. If you have a problem, you need to let people know about it.’ That always stuck with me. In 2009, when I lost my job and my health insurance, I started talking about it with the women in my neighborhood, some of whom were going through the same thing. That was when I met an organizer from the Ohio Organizing Campaign, a CCCAction partner, who told me how I could get involved in the healthcare fight by telling my story.”
