March on Richmond for Medicaid Expansion: 17 Apr 2018

Extending healthcare coverage to 400,000 Virginians and reclaiming tax dollars for Virginia is not a “maybe do,” it’s a “must do.” The General Assembly will get back together on the 17th to discuss Medicaid Expansion and the 18th to vote on it.   That is why on Tuesday, 17 Apr 2018 from 2-3 pm in Capitol Square, Virginians for Medicaid Expansion will march.

For maximum impact, broad participation from every county and independent city in Virginia is needed. Organizers would like to see each county send at least one carpool of 4 people.  Each participant should have a sign with a Medicaid message or simply the name of home county or city.

If interested, complete the RSVP form so  the Capitol Police may be kept apprised of projected attendance.
