Fifty-three years ago, our nation committed to the principle that no American should be denied health insurance for being too old or too poor. Medicare—which primarily serves the elderly—and Medicaid—which serves low-income seniors and families, pregnant women, children and people with disabilities—were signed into law on July 30, 1965. But as we celebrate the anniversary of these bedrock programs that provide vital services to 120 million Americans, including over 3.9 million in Michigan, Medicare and Medicaid are under attack from President Trump and Republicans in Congress. So too is Medicaid’s younger sibling, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which expanded Medicaid coverage to nearly 12 million more Americans and improved Medicare by lowering costs for seniors. The timing of this day of action is especially key as Senators contemplate a new Supreme Court Justice who would likely support overturn of the ACA including pre-existing condition protections and even Medicaid expansion. We will be thanking our Michigan Senators for standing strongly against the SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and standing strongly with Michigan families.

ICE, enabled by Trump and Sessions, have kidnapped over 12,000 children for attempting to enter the country. Many are escaping countries ravaged by violence, only to be ripped from their parents' arms and forced to live in tents and cages. This attempt at ethnic cleansing must end. Whether by legislative bill, mass direct action or the dissolution of ICE, this racially motivated cruelty cannot be tolerated on our shores. Join us for an evening building solidarity among those groups targeted by ICE's pogrom, and planning the next steps forwarding in ridding America of its tyranny. Brought to you by the same team that organized June 14th's rally outside the ICE Field office on Jefferson & Mt. Elliott. This rally will feature contributions and speakers from: - Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation: Serving kids, adults and families in Southwest Detroit with education and career opportunities. - Women's March MI: Drawing some of the largest crowds in the state and country, this protest team is committed to creating a free and equal MI for the first time. - ABISA: Helping Africans coming to America acclimate both socially and legally. - Michigan United: Long running local group with a robust body of work in the field of immigrant advocacy. - Michigan for Revolution: A statewide network of activists pushing the Democratic party to embrace progressive action and policies. - MDPAN: A direct action group in Southeast MI fighting for universal human rights and building solidarity among its proponents.
