Medicare for All Town Hall

Date: 
Wed, May 9, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

We need a healthcare system that prioritizes the health of working-class Americans over the profits of insurance companies and their billionaire executives. We need a single, universal system with comprehensive coverage that is free at the point of service. If you or someone you know is in debt because of healthcare costs or can't see a doctor because of lack of insurance--you're not alone.
