Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care is reaching out, talking to people, and building the movement!
On Saturday, Aug. 4, KSPH staffed a booth at the health fair at the Park DuValle CHC.
Peg Box reports that “there were a lot of tents and many people with families, and we were right next to the band which was good but LOUD. We even got to watch a demonstration of line dancing.”
Of the people who stopped by our booth “many already were advocates of single payer and had a lot of good things to say and stories to share.”
“In spite of the heat and torrid sun on the asphalt, the crowds were good, and we had many signing the petition,” said Charlie Casper. “Most were Medicaid recipients. This event is good exposure for single payer, maybe for just name exposure if nothing else.”
For those who did not know about HR 676, Expanded and Improved Medicare for All, this was their opportunity to learn.
The Park DuValle Community Health Center is federally funded and serves the community filling in the gaps to help those our broken health system abandons.
