Annapolis Rally for Healthcare (User Created)

Join March On Maryland and our co-sponsors Take Action AAC and Progressive Maryland as we rally at Lawyer's Mall to take a stand for the health and well-being of our communities and our country! We will have an array of speakers and if time allows, we will march around the governor's mansion. 

Healthcare must be a right for all and not a privilege for the few. Democrats and Republicans are patients first. It’s time for Congress to prioritize patients over politics!

We are outraged by the rushed passage of the American Health Care Act without public hearings, and without input from the medical community or consumers. We are rallying on July 29th to stop Congress from further damaging our healthcare system and millions of American families. Legislation pending in Congress would cause as many as 24 million Americans to lose coverage; roll back funding for lifesaving services like cancer screenings, maternity care, and substance use disorder treatment; and dramatically scale back Medicaid, causing irreparable harm to the most vulnerable among us.

UPDATE: We are proceeding, rain or shine! We will be assembling at Lawyer's Mall to stand up for the health and wellbeing of our communities and our country. We'll have some ponchos and tarps, and we're asking people to bring extra umbrellas if you have them. Our speakers in alphabetical order are:

Rushern Baker - County Executive, Prince George's County
