Hands Around the Capitol to #ProtectOurCare
Thursday at 7 PM – 9 PM
Texas State Capitol
1100 Congress Ave, Austin, Texas 78701
We could be just days away from the Senate voting on an Affordable Care Act repeal bill that is both disastrous and cruel. But we’re not going to let them vote without hearing the loud voices of Texans!
This may be our last chance to show the Senate what we’re made of – to tell them NO to gutting Medicaid, NO repeal of the ACA, and NO to Trumpcare.
Thursday night we will surround the Texas State Capitol with a human chain–circling the Capitol with our collective voices, our bodies and our power. Join us!
IF EVER THERE WERE A NEED TO SHOW UP IN PERSON, THIS IS IT! WE NEED AT LEAST 500 PEOPLE TO MAKE A FULL CIRCLE AROUND THE CAPITOL!
WHAT TO BRING:
Write a personal letter about how the ACA or Medicaid has impacted your life. Include your concerns about Trumpcare and backdoor dealings. Bring the letter to read out loud or simply hand it in for us to deliver to a senator staffer. You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to, supporting others is just as important. Bring your friends!!! Bring your children and babies!!!! Get the word out. We need BIG NUMBERS in attendance!! (Also, probably bring your bug spray.)
