Western Mass. Medicare for All will join advocates from across the state on Wednesday, January 23rd to lobby for Medicare for All in Boston. If you can’t travel to Boston that day, please mark the date anyway to call or email your state Senator and Representative and ask them to cosponsor the new Medicare for All bills. For questions and carpooling: info@wmMedicareforall.org.
Here’s the announcement from Mass-Care below. We will keep you posted as more details become available.
Save the Date: January 23rd is the 2019 Lobby Day for our single payer bills!
Join us at the Grand Staircase of the State House at 11AM for a mini-rally to kick things off. Senator Eldridge, lead sponsor of the Senate bill, and other community leaders will speak about the importance of this legislation.
After we rally, we’ll break into small groups to visit our legislators and ask them to sponsor the bills.
Don’t worry if you’ve never lobbied before – we’ll send you with experienced activists who will show you the ropes. We’re also providing everyone with packets to hand over to your legislators, which will include a fact sheet on the bill, media about the ballot question win, and where to find more resources on single payer.
See you at 11AM on January 23rd!
Yours in solidarity,
