Virginians from across the Commonwealth will travel to Richmond on Saturday, March 15th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to rally for health care. Hundreds of Virginians will send a message to their elected officials that the time to expand Medicaid and close the coverage gap for hundreds of thousands of Virginians is now.
Participants will gather at Festival Park and we hope to have 1,000 people participate from all parts of the Commonwealth. Register Online if you will join us. We are making plans for buses to bring advocates from Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, and the New River Valley but those plans are still being finalized. We can’t promise seats on the bus for everyone, but register now and let us now if you need a ride.
The rally is sponsored by organizations including Virginia New Majority, Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy, Virginia Consumer Voices, Virginia Coalition of Latino Americans, Virginia AFL-CIO, SEIU Virginia 512, ProgressVA, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, Organizing for America, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, and the Fast Food Workers.
