Preparing for the Nonviolent Medicaid Army Week of Action
|Join us on Saturday September 9th for a National Prep & Pep Rally to prepare for the Nonviolent Medicaid Army’s National Week of Action from September 17th to 23rd. |
The Nonviolent Medicaid Army (NVMA) National Week of Action is a coordinated week of actions across the NVMA network of organizations of those on or excluded from Medicaid all over the country.
This year’s Week of Action is centered on connecting across difference sharing stories from people all across the country, in both “blue” and “red” states who are impacted by the bipartisan decision to cut 24 million people or more off of Medicaid as pandemic protections come to an end. We will hold both parties accountable for taking away healthcare from millions of people across the country and for the life threatening conditions this is already causing. And to highlight those making money off of our sickness and death and we will amplify our common struggle for healthcare as a human right as we continue to build our movement nationwide.
