With the failure of Republicans to offer a workable alternative to the Affordable Care Act, the time is now to push for universal health care. Join Frederick County Progressives for a march and rally calling on Maryland officials to support a single-payer, Medicare for All system. The event will take place on a national day of action to raise awareness of and support for National, Improved Medicare for All, as outlined in Bill HR-676, as the solution we need to our systemic health insurance crisis.
Speakers will include:
- Dr. Margaret Flowers, PopularResistance.org
- Mike Hersh, National Communications Director, Progressive Democrats of America
- Rev. Carl Gregg, Minister, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick
- Jim French, Leader, Healthcare is a Human Right Frederick
