As we mark the first anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) today, it’s important to remember what this law is all about: people. So instead of filling our space here with words that tell, we thought it would be better to show what the ACA means to real people. We encourage you to watch this moving video about Violet and her family, and please do all you can to spread this story far and wide through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, websites, and any other way you know how.

This is why we all worked so hard to pass the ACA and need to continue to fight for the law. And this is why it matters.

Visit Protect Your Care for more on Violet and others helped by the law.
