PEOPLE'S MARCH FOR
MEDICARE FOR ALL
MAY 6, 2018
National Nurses Day
10 am to 5 pm
Wright Park, Tacoma
501 S. I Street, Tacoma, Washington
Join us on May 6th, National Nurses Day, in beautiful Wright Park in Tacoma, Washington for this historical event. Canada recently celebrated 50 years since moving to a Medicare for All, single-payer system. They accomplished this province by province. We have the rare opportunity as Washingtonians to become the Saskatchewan Province of the United States of America, to open the floodgates for millions of people across the nation.
We will sing, we will dance, and we will support our nurses who overwhelmingly endorse I-1600. We'll hear from grass roots candidates, who are leading the way toward a Medicare for All, single-payer system and include Dr. Rev. Barber's Poor People's Campaign for a moral revival. And, YES! We will get signatures needed to get Universal Healthcare on the 2018 Washington ballot!
Thank you to the amazing musicians who have donated their talent to support this event with entertainment!
