July's Featured Little Lobbyists! 
Annelise Bedan, CT, Olivia Hatcher MD, & Estie Johnson,AR

These three young women spoke eloquently at our first bicameral press conference on June 26 with Senator Chuck Schumer, Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senator Maggie Hassan, and Representative Anthony Brown. They told their stories and talked about the need to defend protections for people with pre-existing conditions, like themselves and all our other Little Lobbyists, so that they can continue to have access to high-quality affordable health care as they grow up and strive to achieve their dreams. 

Watch their incredible speeches below!

But wait, there's more!
