In Pennsylvania alone, 1.3 million people do not have health care. With limitations on coverage due to pre-existing conditions and/or high costs, families are unable to obtain or afford coverage. Reform is necessary to ensure a physically and financially healthy future for America.
To show the need for healthcare, from February 17th through February 24th, individuals will be marching from Philadelphia to Washington, DC.
While a group will march the entire 133 miles, organizers are inviting everyone to join for as long as they are able to. Many will begin the march with the core group leaving Philadelphia on the 17th and rejoin them in Washington on the 24th. If you want to spend just a day or two marching in Delaware or Maryland, there will be arranged vans and car pools.
To RSVP and for more information, please contact Marc Stier.
To kick off the march on February 17th there will be a rally at noon in Philadelphia (the exact location is yet to be determined).
