Celebrate Medicare's Birthday!

Saturday July 30th 1 pm

Meet at North Park Blocks, NW 8th and Couch

In this moment of growing crisis and downward pressure on our wages, benefits and working conditions, we are taking a stand to defend Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid from deficit hawks who want to make working people pay for the crisis caused by Wall Street bankers.

On July 30th, the anniversary of the creation of Medicare, we will gather at the North Park Blocks and march down Burnside to Skidmore Fountain, where we will celebrate with song and cake. We will call for an improved Medicare for All: a universal health care system that guarantees everyone in the United States access to the kind of high-quality, affordable health care that exists in every other industrialized country in the world.

Everybody In, Nobody Out!
