"Our Lives on the Line" is a massive nationwide day of action to uplift the voices of the millions of Americans whose health care will be ripped away if Congressional Republicans continue with their plan to give more power to big insurance companies and undermine affordable, quality care.
Millions of Americans have spoken out about what the health care repeal would mean for them and their families—and their voices were heard. Even so, Congressional Republicans will continue to move forward with their plan to strip health care from millions of people. The fight to protect every American’s access to quality, affordable health care has never been more critical. On Saturday, July 29, thousands of people across the United States will gather as part of “Our Lives on the Line”, a massive, nationwide day of action that will be show of force against plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act and send a clear message to Republicans in Congress: we won’t forget the votes you took and your continued attacks against the health, safety, and economic stability of your constituents.
This is the Chicago rally in solidarity with the National event in D.C. and the dozens of events nationwide. At the event, we will have leaders from the progressive and health care communities organizing to take a stand against the Republican repeal bill and send a clear message to Congress: our lives are on the line! We will also hear stories from individuals who will be adversely impacted by the cuts to healthcare as proposed in this Senate healthcare bill.
The day of action will also include a national event in Washington, D.C. and dozens of rallies across the country.
National partners in this action include:
