Progressives WNC focus on Healthcare

Just because Trumpcare seems to be dead does not mean that the fight is over. The Republicans are still talking about repealing the current healthcare act with no replacement. this would throw the insurance and healthcare industries into chaos. Reach out to your representatives to be sure that the Affordable Healthcare Act (aka Obamacare) is not sabotaged out of existence. Go to our Elected Officials page for contact info.

Help the Progressives by distributing flyers that detail problems and solutions. Meet at the By-Lo on Russ Ave on Saturdays at 10am to pick up flyers, then hand them out wherever you can. In front of doctor’s offices, the Recreation Center or Fitness Center are all good spots.

Let’s support a single-payer, Medicare for all solution that would guarantee coverage for all citizens of North Carolina including the young, the working poor and the sick and disabled.
