Date: 
Sat, Apr 8, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

A peaceful demonstration to bring the immediate necessity of our health care to the politicians who would rather support tax cuts for the wealthy. We will demonstrate for the people of Flint who need and deserve excellent, affordable health care after being poisoned by our state government. We demonstrate for the disabled, the elderly, the sick, and the poor people of Michigan who we will not allow to be sacrificed to enrich wealthy insurance companies. We demonstrate for ourselves and our families. Let's show our power!

Rally at GOP Congressional Offices to Defend the ACA and Planned Parenthood

Date: 
Sat, Mar 25, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The House of Representatives will vote on the bill to “defund” Planned Parenthood and repeal the ACA. However, it is clear that the White House, Speaker Ryan, and House Republican leadership are moving fast and furiously to get this bill to the floor as soon as possible.

These delays are not a victory, it’s a call to action.

On Saturday, March 25 at 12pm, we will rally outside every GOP Congressional office in Michigan to let them know that we believe that every person deserves access to comprehensive healthcare.

ACA Candlelight Vigil -Walberg's Office

Date: 
Wed, Mar 22, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

On Thursday Congress will vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA), otherwise knows as Trump Care. Approximately 17,000 people could die in 2018 if this law passes and by 2026, the number could grow to 29,000 in that year alone.

The Congressional Budget Office report released Monday afternoon details the impact of the House Republican health bill. It estimates that:

- "in 2018, 14 million more people would be uninsured under the legislation than under current law"

- it projects this number will rise to “24 million in 2026.”

On the anniversary of the ACA, join Michigan People's Campaign, Fighting #9, Indivisible 11th District, and SEIU Healthcare at a funeral procession march in Detroit.

We believe the House of Representatives will vote on their health care bill on 3/23. Let's show our Representatives that we OPPOSE this bill. We OPPOSE cuts to Medicaid. We OPPOSE tax breaks to the 1% on the backs of poor, working families.

We want health care that works for all of us.

Meet us at 12:15 p.m. at Hart Plaza. The march will go up to Campus Martius and loop back around.
