Health Care is a Human Right: March to Collin’s Office (Portland)
February 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Maine Health Care is a Human Right Coalition, The Southern Maine Workers’ Center, Maine AllCare, and the Maine State Nurses Association/National Nurses United to defend our human right to health care!
As we enter this era where attacks on our human rights will be escalated on all fronts, we know that now is not a time to make concessions or fight for scraps. Now, more than ever, we must imagine, create, and demand institutions that put our human rights at the center.
Join us for a rally and march to Senator Collins office, where we will demand the senator attend a People’s Forum on the Human Right to Health Care, where she will hear directly from us about the harmful impacts of her terrible ACA “replacement” proposal, and where we will lift up our vision for universal, publicly funded health care, to guarantee our human rights.
For over four years, we’ve been talking to people all across the state about their experiences with the health care system. 94% of the people we talked to believe health care is a human right, and 80% support the idea of a universal, publicly funded health care system. It’s time politicians fight for what the majority of people want! It’s time we cut private interests out of the equation, and build a health care system based on care, dignity and human rights.
