#ACAWHChat: An Afternoon Tweeting with the White House’s Jon Carson
If you’re following us on Twitter, you probably saw that we participated in a tweetchat yesterday with the White House’s Jon Carson and some friends from MomsRising to celebrate the second anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
I accompanied Judy Waxman, NWLC’S Vice President for Health and Reproductive Rights, over to the White House for the tweetchat. We gathered at 2:00 yesterday afternoon and after a quick group photo, we got started and dug into a Twitter conversation about how the health care law is helping women and their families.

There were a TON of questions out there on Twitter for us to answer – seriously, tons! After scrolling through some of the first tweets to get sent our way using the #ACAWHchat tag, we rolled up our sleeves and got to answering. Here’s a quick shot of Judy Waxman working with HHS’s Rima Cohen and Jon Carson to answer some questions. Jon even answered some questions in Spanish so we could reach out to the Spanish-speaking communities to let them know how the health care law will help them!
After about an hour of tweetchatting, we wrapped up the discussion. If you missed the chat, you can check out what we discussed over on Twitter. Or take a look at the Storify post that Jon Carson’s team put together to round up the chat with – we’ve embedded it below. Thanks to all who participated! We had a great time tweeting with you yesterday.
