I had a great time celebrating Medicare’s Birthday at the Portland rally today! It was wonderful to see so many people gathered to honor Medicare and make the call for a Medicare-for-All healthcare system to provide healthcare for everyone in this country.
I believe that healthcare is a human right, not a privilege. Seeing Senator Michael Dembrow – a single-payer, universal healthcare champion – speak at the event was definitely a highlight, as were the always creative and entertaining Raging Grannies. It was inspiring to hear speakers from the Oregon Nurses Association, Jobs with Justice, the Working Family Party and more.
Thank you to everyone who organized this event!
