Medicare for All Rally!

January 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

As we honor the memory of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we remember these words of his: “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Come to our rally to show your support for Medicare for All and learn what a just, humane and cost-effective healthcare system could look like in our country. Bring a folding chair if you choose, you’ll want to stay for a while!

Confirmed presenters so far include:
Rev. Jennifer Copeland
Dr. Jim Duffett
Dr. Aparna Jonnal
Rebecca Cerese
Rev. Dr. Carl Kenney II
Sondra Stein
Imam Abdul Waheed
Rev. Spencer Bradford
Poet Darrell Stover
