May 5, 2017: Protesting TrumpCare
TrumpCare passed the House of Representatives yesterday on a vote of 217-213. If this bill passes the Senate, millions of Americans will lose their healthcare, and millions more will face higher premiums and lower coverage. Here in San Diego, Indivisible groups from across the county are joining together to send a message to every House Republican who voted in favor of this bill, and to every Senator who might be tempted to do the same. If you are able, please attend a rally today and make your voice heard.

Where: Alcazar Garden, Balboa Park, San Diego, CA
When: 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Friday, May 5, 2017.
Participants will gather at the Alcazar Gardens and walk to the Cabrillo Bridge (Laurel Street overpass). Bring signs that can be visible from the freeway below, holding House Republicans responsible and putting Senators on notice.

When: 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. Friday, May 5, 2017.
A major provision of TrumpCare would defund Planned Parenthood and roll back coverages for women's health. Planned Parenthood is hosting a rally at Congressman Darrell Issa's office today in opposition to the bill.
