Southerners for Medicaid Expansion
-1 Night-8 States-1 Cause
On October 1, eight Southern States joined together for the first ever Southerners for Medicaid Expansion Digital Vigil. With over 180,000 Americans dead from COVID-19 and tens of thousands of Southerners who have died from not expanding Medicaid, we held this action of remembrance to honor the lives of people who have suffered from being uninsured and unable to get the healthcare they need. Stacey Abrams delivered inspiring remarks and Rev. Dr. William Barber gave a powerful and moving keynote address.
