Health care justice cannot be achieved as long as big money flows unchecked into our political system and states are allowed to reinstate Jim Crow-style voting restrictions. That is why UHCAN has joined with over 200 other allies to support Democracy Awakening, a weekend of workshops, trainings, rallies, music, advocacy and direct action in support of voting rights and money in politics reform. It’s taking place in Washington DC from April 16-18.
Statement from the organizational endorsers – additional endorsers are still being recruited: “We’re a broad coalition of organizations representing the labor, peace, environmental, student, racial justice, civil rights and money in politics reform movements. We share a firm belief that we will not win on the full range of policy issues we all care about until we combat attacks on voting rights and the integrity of the vote by big money.” Go to democracyawakening.org for more information.
