Louisville and 54 other cities plan March for Medicare for All, July 24, 2021

Rally and march for improved Medicare for All.

Sat. July 24, 2021, at 11 AM

Mazzoli Federal Bldg., 600 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Pl.

We will begin at 11 AM in the park in front of the Federal Building where we have permission from the city to use the site.  We will set up under the trees near the corner of 7th & Chestnut so speakers and participants alike will be in the shade.

We will have speakers (brief) and music then march and/or caravan to Breewayy, the square at 6th between Liberty and Jefferson.

There we will place flowers in honor of Breonna Taylor, to connect with her profession as a healer, and to link the struggle for health care with the fight to end systemic racism.  We will return to where we began and share refreshments and socialize.

We will also be celebrating Medicare’s 56th birthday.  We hope you will join with us in demanding that Congress take action by passing a national single payer, improved Medicare for All plan.  Such a plan would end the tragic denial of care that causes so much suffering and unnecessary loss of life.
