I feel like I should pass this along for those of you still optimistic we can get something good through Congress… from MomsRising:
For the last week, a group of health insurance company survivors has been walking from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. in honor of Melanie Shouse, a healthcare activist, who had breast cancer and recently died because she couldn’t find affordable healthcare.
When they get to DC, we need to be there to meet them and send a message to Congress: Listen to America’s families, not the insurance companies. Pass healthcare reform that works for us, now.
Can you join us? Here are the details:
Where: In front of Union Station – Washington, DC
When: Wednesday, February 24th – 12:00 pm
Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will meet the marchers at Union Station at 12 pm and march with them the last mile to Capitol Hill, where we’ll have a rally at the Dirksen Office Building (Room 50) with Members of Congress at 2 pm.
(Make sure to arrive a little early at Capitol Hill so you have enough time to get through security, and please don’t bring any large bags, it can slow down the process.)
We need to stand together and make sure Congress hears us! No more excuses. No more politics. We need healthcare reform now!
We’ve got to stand up and make sure they don’t turn back now, not when we’re so close.
Can you join us at this rally? It’s crucial we get this message out that Congress must get reform done, and get it done right.
Hope to see you there!
