Join the MSNA “Health Care is a Human Right” Tour!
Maine State Nurses Association, 9/3/13
Join MSNA and healthcare justice advocates on the "Health Care is a Human Right" Tour! The program consists of two parts – health screenings and town hall meetings -- and the tour’s purpose is to broaden and diversify public support and deepen RN support for Medicare for All.
We also want to collect stories of healthcare denials, medical bankruptcies, and financial hardship to press the case for why we need guaranteed healthcare via improved Medicare for All-- the only real solution to the healthcare crisis. By reaching out to seniors and communities touched by unemployment, foreclosure, shrinking health coverage and even more scarce treatment options, we hope to both serve and educate.
In Bangor and Portland, we'll do outreach in the community in the afternoon (via media and leafleting) and set-up. The health care screening begins at 3:00pm, followed immediately by a town hall from 6:00 – 7:30pm at the same site. Exact locations will be announced as soon as we have them.
If you would like to volunteer some time to conduct basic screenings, meet your neighbors and help NNU build the national case for universal coverage through Medicare For All, please sign up here and we'll contact you with more information!
