Raise your voice for health justice
“We need your voice now!” says the DC Health Justice Coalition, which is hosting a rally tomorrow (Thursday) at 10a in front of the Wilson Building. “The DC Council is currently considering a budget that slashes needed funds to operate United Medical Center and forces the hospital to close by 2022,” the Coalition says. “The same bill strips even basic worker protections from the proposed hospital at St. Elizabeths, eliminates the need for the new hospital to partner with Howard University Medical School, and still keeps the public in the dark about the services that will be provided.” The DC Council will vote on the budget next week and at Thursday’s action “We will speak directly to Councilmembers about the need for comprehensive health services, transparency, and good jobs in Southeast.” Click here to learn more and RSVP.
