Healthcare Equity Project: Rally, Speak-Out & Candlelight Vigil (6/24/09)
Our country is in the midst of a healthcare crisis. We have a broken system that costs too much, covers too few, and is increasingly out of reach for many communities, particularly women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other underserved populations.
These communities have suffered from systemic healthcare disparities that have resulted in greater suffering from chronic diseases, shorter life spans, and an overall lower quality of life. We demand that our elected leaders pass healthcare reform legislation that ensures high quality, affordable healthcare that works for everyone!
JOIN US on June 24th to:
*Speak out to demand healthcare equity for all
*Stand up for the health of our children and families
*Culminate the evening with a candlelight vigil to symbolize the power of the healthcare equity movement
*Enjoy free food and live cultural entertainment
