MONDAY: 10:00am at American Federation of Teachers, 555 New Jersey Ave NW. Wheelchair accessible, on F Street.

It's time to kill the barbaric Republican healthcare bill.

We're bringing mass civil disobedience to the halls of Washington DC, demanding that Senate Republicans vote NO on the Better Care Reconciliation Act or ANY bill that would cut Medicaid, allow insurance companies to discriminate against people with preexisting conditions, or increase the total number of people without coverage.

22 million people will lose their health insurance due to this legislation – leading to high rates of preventable illness, injury and death — all to give a massive tax cut to the wealthy. This cannot be the path forward for healthcare in our country. We must kill this bill, and enact Medicare For All, single payer health care system. But right now, we have to stop this bill from becoming law.

There will be a MANDATORY CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE TRAINING for all who wish to risk arrest during the action. There will be a training on Sunday evening at 7:30pm at St. Stephen Episcopal Church, 1525 Newton St NW. There will likely also be a Monday morning training, depending on the finalized action time. Stay tuned to this page for updated information.
