Health Care For All Rally

Nov 4 2005 - 5:45pm
Nov 4 2005 - 6:45pm

Event Description:

To be held in front of Houston City Hall.

The goal of this rally is not to advocate for one particular solution to this complex issue, but to raise this issue to the moral consciousness of our society. We believe that the wealthiest nation in the world, which often speaks of "values", has a moral obligation to find a way to erase this great and obvious divide between the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots. We are also going to voice our opposition to the proposed Medicaid cuts, which will leave many Katrina survivors and other Americans without insurance.

Invited speakers include Congresswoman Jackson Lee, Congressman Green, Archbishop Fiorenza, Councilmember Adrian Garcia, Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, Dr. Ana Malinow of Health Care For All Texas, a janitor from the Justice for Janitors campaign, as well as national AMSA leaders.

Organized by the American Medical Student Association chapters at Baylor College of Medicine and UT-Houston.
