The Health Care Law and Survivors of Domestic Violence: Advocating to Ensure Financial Assistance is Available

March 26, 2014

The health care law, also known as the Affordable Care Act, poses challenges to the special circumstances of survivors of domestic violence and the need for additional advocacy and tools to ensure that survivors are able to get affordable, quality health coverage.

In this webinar, we will review various advocacy tools that can be used to help survivors of domestic violence access health insurance coverage and obtain eligibility for financial support under the new law.  Some specific resources will be presented, such as tools to use to advocate for an allowance for survivors of domestic violence to file separate tax returns from their spouse, which will help them get the financial support they need when enrolling for health coverage.

When Bosses Think Birth Control is Their Business: Legal Principles at Stake in the SCOTUS Contraceptive Coverage Benefit Case

March 20, 2014

Later this month, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two cases brought by for-profit corporations challenging the requirement that insurance plans cover birth control without co-pay. 

This webinar covers the right to religious exercise that corporations are trying to claim, how the corporations’ argument that bosses should be able to discriminate under the guise of the "free exercise of religion" actually undermines religious liberty and is the same idea that Arizona recently sought to codify in its anti-gay bill, and the danger that such a notion poses to women's health, women's equality, and equality interests more broadly.

 

Featured speakers: Judy Waxman, National Women's Law Center; David Gans, Constitutional Accountability Center; Greg Lipper, Americans United for Separation of Church and State; Emily Martin, National Women's Law Center; Thomas Ude, Lambda Legal
