Yesterday, local health care advocates and grassroots activists joined a nationwide day of action at events across the country, including an event in Lewiston. Health care advocates from across the state joined together to protest efforts to repeal and sabotage the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and demanding that our elected representatives vote to protect our health care.
Those gathered highlighted how plans to repeal the ACA and undermine families’ access to health care would be devastating to hundreds of thousands in Maine. Speakers also shared their personal stories, telling the crowd how the ACA saved their lives and removed barriers they faced in finding quality, affordable insurance.
At the rally, speakers called on protesters to continue holding their elected officials accountable, saying that the fight to protect our care was far from over.
