CaHPSA Lobby Day & Rally to support SB 810
When: Monday, January 9, 2012
Where: Sacramento & Los Angeles
Please join hundreds of health professional students and activists on the steps of the capitol as we rally to support SB 810, the California Universal Healthcare Act. For the sixth year in a row, hundreds of dedicated students take to streets and march to the capitol to voice their support for healthcare justice for all. As the future of medicine, these brave young people support a system where everyone has access to medical care, not just those who can afford it. Please join us in cheering them on as they lobby their legislators to enact a publicly financed, privately delivered, equitable, sustainable and just health care system for all Californians!
If you are unable to travel to Sacramento on this day, please join us in Los Angeles for a solidarity action.
