Anyone concerned about changes to Medicaid is invited to a meeting on May 22 to learn about ways that Medicaid is under attack and what we can do to preserve and expand it. The meeting will take place from 6:00-7:00 pm at the Root Social Justice Center, 28 Williams St., Brattleboro. Doors open at 5:30 for light refreshments. The Root is handicap accessible, nut free and fragrance free. The meeting is sponsored by the Vermont Worker’s Center. For more info, or to request a ride or childcare, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (802) 257-4436.
• Do you or a family member count on Medicaid or Dr. Dynasaur?
• Are you a person with a disability who relies on Medicaid to live independently?
• Are you unable to access dental or other care you need? Are you unfairly excluded from Medicaid because of immigration status or other reasons?
• Are you worried about proposed changes to Medicaid?
You are not alone. Over 1 in 3 of us in Vermont is on some form of Medicaid or uses a Medicaid-funded service.
The Healthcare is a Human Right campaign of the Vermont Workers’ Center is holding a Rally & March for Medicaid on June 16th in St. Johnsbury, with caravans from around the state. The event is handicap accessible. For more information about that event go to www.workerscenter.org.
