Celebrate Pride Month By Demanding Medicare For All
Tell Your Senators We Need Healthcare Equality For All
Millions of Americans were un- or under-insured even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, millions of us are losing our jobs and with them our employer-provided healthcare.
Meanwhile, as we were focused on Trump and his regime’s poor preparation for the pandemic, these bigots have been targeting vulnerable people for abuse. During Pride Month, the Trump regime has unilaterally stripped away rights to healthcare from LGBTQIA+ people!
We need Medicare For All (MFA), because only MFA will guarantee every one of us will receive all the medically necessary care we need—regardless of our age, gender, zip code, orientation, creed, ethnicity, or anything else. Join with Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) demanding action to save lives and protect our health and jobs:
Sen. Bernie Sanders said, “Our most vulnerable communities are hungry, desperate and under enormous emotional stress. The American people want action from Congress and they want it NOW.”
Republicans, led by Trump and Sen. McConnell, are obstructing needed emergency response policies and planning.
Act now to protect healthcare professionals. Nurses, doctors, and other care-givers are getting sick and dying because our elected officials refuse to respond courageously or effectively. Click Here to get info. and instructions from Mike Fox.
Can’t make the town hall but still want to help our healthcare campaigns? Contact us and we’ll keep you as busy as you’d like to be.
Can’t volunteer? Then pitch in whatever you can afford to help finance our ongoing campaign for Medicare For All and other health policies we need to effectively respond to the pandemic, to promote an equitable economic recovery, and to upgrade our healthcare system.
We need an empowered, progressive mass movement to demand the policies and government responses needed to save lives and rebuild our shattered economy. We need your active support to get there.
P.S.: Please remember to RSVP to Mike Fox to join our Healthcare Emergency Virtual Town Hall / Webinar Sunday 6/21 from 4-5pm ET, 1-2pm PT. Mike will provide all the call-in information.
