Recap: the Hill’s gentrification conversation continues and “secret shoppers” reveal Washington health insurance companies are misleading customers on contraceptive coverage

Recent reporting:

– A recent ‘sting’ study produced by the National Abortion Rights Action League [NARAL] and Northwest Health Law Advocacy [NoHLA] revealed that numerous health insurance providers in Washington are providing misleading and inaccurate information about contraceptive coverage, with some even charging copays for FDA-approved methods—a practice that is illegal under the Affordable Care Act.

Late post: photo essay from 11/24 Seattle #Ferguson protests

11.30.14

Photos of mine from last Monday’s protests over the #Ferguson grand jury ruling not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for shooting unarmed black male Michael Brown featured on the PubliCola blog at Seattle Met. March remained peaceful until clashes erupted between Police & protesters as protesters tried to march onto the I-5 freeway via an on-ramp. Read CHS blog coverage here, and watch video of the incident taken by me below.

More shots & video from the rest of last week’s protests coming soon.
