Join us to Celebrate Medicare’s 58th Birthday with “The Power to Heal” a documentary

Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care invites you to join us in celebrating Medicare’s 58th Anniversary with a free showing of the documentary The Power to Heal narrated by Danny Glover.

In less than four months Medicare transformed the nation’s hospitals from our most racially and economically segregated institutions into our most integrated. Hospitals, which had for a half century selectively served people on the basis of race and wealth, were forced to care for all.

Medicare not only brought health care to our nation’s seniors but it ended segregation in hospitals with its insistence that only integrated hospitals could receive these funds.

“The Power to Heal”

Louisville, KY 40203

(Medicare Birthday cupcakes will be served.)

As we celebrate the birth of the Medicare program as a force for racial and health care justice, our country’s health care needs another transformation–not just for seniors but for all ages.

We demand the passage of an Expanded and Improved Medicare for All.

Join us as we renew the struggle to win national, not-for-profit, single payer health care for the nation.  

Remove the profiteers and make health care a human right. 

Support Improved Medicare for All.  Everybody in, nobody out!
