July 29: Indivisible to Host ‘Our Lives on the Line’ Rally in Santa Rosa As Part of Nationwide Day of Action
Advocates Oppose Republican Efforts to Strip Health Care from Millions of Americans
Santa Rosa, CA: Millions of Americans’ health care will be ripped away as Congressional Republicans continue to undermine affordable, quality care. In response to this potential crisis, a massive nationwide “Our Lives on the Line” day of action will lift 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. For more on the national event, seeOurlivesontheline.org.
In Santa Rosa, elected officials will join leaders from Indivisible groups, the healthcare community, and local citizens, to speak against the latest Republican repeal bill and send a clear message to Congress: our lives are on the line. Speakers include:
· Supervisor Shirlee Zane
· Santa Rosa Vice Mayor Jack Tibbetts
· Santa Rosa City Councilman Chris Rogers
· Director of Strategy and Innovation at West County Health Centers, Luke Entrup
· Santa Rosa Physician Roger Delwiche
· Indivisible members with family healthcare stories, and
· A capella singing group, the MPeaches
The Rally starts at 2300 County Center Drive (north parking lot) at 11:00 AM where the group will walk to 600 Administration Drive for speeches and personal healthcare stories delivered at noon. The rally will end at the intersection of Mendocino Avenue and Administration drive at approximately 1:00 PM.
