This August, let's turn up the heat on Congress

Medicare For All PrescriptionClick here to sign up for our "Rx: Medicare for all" campaign

As legislators return to their districts during the month of August, we need to not only express opposition to the various efforts to shred our health care safety net, but also push for a real solution in the form of improved Medicare for all.

We're urging our members to show up in large numbers at town hall meetings and to participate in "sidewalk town halls" aimed at legislators who are avoiding their constiuents. We're also encouraging members to plan or particpate in other health justice actions leading up to Labor Day.

To sign up for our "Rx: Medicare for all" campaign, please fill out this form. You may also wish to browse a regularly updated schedule of events by visiting the Town Hall Project website.
