Thursday, September 22, 5:00-7:00pm AZT – Phone Banking with UUJAZ: Zoom event. Join Unitarian Universalist Justice Arizona (UUJAZ) and UU the Vote on Thursday, September 22, to make calls to Arizona voters about Proposition 209! No Arizona family should lose their home or car due to medical emergencies or accidents, or be trapped into unending debt by unfair interest rates on medical care. Prop 209 protects consumers from predatory debt collection by:
- Increasing the protected value of people’s primary home to better match Arizona’s median home value
- Increasing the allowed value of protected household goods and bank accounts
- Increasing the protected value of vehicles
- Limiting wage garnishment for debt to no more than 10% of disposable earnings
- Limiting the interest rate on medical debt to no more than 3%
Help protect Arizonans from losing their cars, homes and wages due to unfair medical debt! Sign up at UU the Vote Phone Bank to Arizona (everyaction.com)
