Join the growing movement for responsible Medicaid reform.
With the federal government looking to make drastic budget cuts, Medicaid is in serious peril.
ADAPT, a grassroots coalition of disability rights activists, is leading an effort to gather thousands of civil rights advocates in Washington, D.C., to rally for responsible Medicaid reform. The message: Destroying our safety net is not a way to save money.
Housing Works is jumping in. Join us!
When: Sept. 21, 2011. Noon.
Where: Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.
Who: ADAPT, Housing Works and dozens of other disability rights groups across the country.
Buses are leaving for Washington, D.C., from cities around the country.
