Yesterday over 350 MPA members and allies rallied in Augusta to demand that the legislature accept the federal funding and stop denying health care for 70,000 Mainers.
If you were able to come yesterday, thank you. Together we made our voices heard and legislators took notice.
Here are some photos from yesterday:
“We are called to shine light on those in darkness, to heal the broken and not leave them by the side of the road,” declared Pastor Rick Ness of Wales.
After the rally, we packed the halls and asked our legislators to do the right thing. The crowd was so thick you could barely move.
And we made the front pages of newspapers all over Maine!
This is a good start, but there's a lot more to do over the next few critical weeks to make sure we end the suffering and pass health care expansion.
