On October 3 the Vermont Workers’ Center will hold a March for Medicaid in Bellows Falls. This is part of a national week of action coordinated by the Workers’ Center and the Nonviolent Medicaid Army, a growing national force fighting for universal healthcare and all economic and social rights for poor and working class people. The campaign is calling on Governor Scott to protect Medicaid by cutting the state’s contract with OneCare, a for-profit company siphoning off millions in Medicaid funding that should be spent on people’s healthcare, and to make good on Vermont’s commitment to universal healthcare as enacted in Act 48.
The march starts at noon at the Rockingham Health Center, 1 Hospital Ct., Bellows Falls. It will be a physically distanced march to the Waypoint Center, where there will be a rally featuring stories from around the state and a chance to learn about next steps. Join anywhere along the way. Masks are required and will be provided to anyone who needs one.
