What's New

May 18

I am the child who grew up on social welfare; homemade meals and health check ups were graciously sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Onlookers labeled my parents the 'Social Welfare Queen' and king who had 'more kids than they could afford.' They knew nothing of my parents' culture, history, and incredible resilience.

Tomorrow, Thursday, May 18, the House Judiciary Committee will mark up the "Michael Davis, Jr. and Danny Oliver in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act," previously called the "SAFE Act," but more aptly known as the "Trump Mass Deportation Act."

May 10
May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, dedicated to commemorating and celebrating the ways in which Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities continue to enrich the United States with their deep history, resilience, and culture. What better way to celebrate AAPI Heritage Month than by ensuring that AAPIs like Southeast Asian American families have access to affordable health care?

SEARAC rejects today's vote (217-213) in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act by passing the AHCA, which would eliminate health coverage for 24 million people and cause over 43,000 deaths annually.

May 2

The AHCA was bad, and Rep. Tom MacArthur's amendments only make the bill worse. The Trump administration and GOP House leaders claim they have enough votes to pass the amended American Health Care Act (AHCA) THIS WEEK. The bill will cause 24 million people to lose health coverage by 2026. Take action.
