At issue is the upcoming confirmation hearings for the president’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court. 

The group points out the next U.S. Supreme Court could shape the future of health care in the United States for decades, including reproductive health and access to affordable care.

The group is also calling for a “twitter storm” on the issue on social media platforms.  Citizen Action was calling for participants to go on social media between noon at 2 p.m. and during the presidential debate between 9 and 10:30 p.m.
