Action Alert

Tom Price confirmed as
Secretary of HHS

February 10, 2017

At 1:46 a.m. this morning, the U.S. Senate confirmed NAACP- Opposed Congressman Tom Price (GA) to be the next Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS).  Unfortunately, Congressman Price’s record clearly demonstrates that his views are so far out of the mainstream that he is wholly unsuited to serve as Secretary of an agency that has a profound impact on the health and security of every American family.   Cornell William Brooks, the NAACP President and CEO, had called upon NAACP members and supporters around the nation to write, call, post, tweet and protest their opposition to this problematic nomination.

For more information on Congressman Price’s philosophy, as well as to see how your Senators voted, please see the attached Issue Update.
