@Mike Bishop's office
On 6-4-17, at 2pm, constituents of the 11th Congressional District of Michigan and their allies will congregate at Representative David Trott's office and other representatives to perform a die in, a symbolic form of peaceful protest to illustrate the unnecessary death that will result from the Republican AHCA legislation. This event will run concurrently with numerous other organizations as part of a coordinated nationwide action to let our elected officials in D.C. know, we will not stay silent while Republicans strip 23 million people of their healthcare over the next ten years. We will not passively accept 14 million people losing their healthcare in the next year alone. We will not sit idle while “$992 billion in tax giveaways would go primarily to the wealthy and corporations, including drug manufacturers and health insurance companies.” We aim to impact the fate bill in the senate, or stop it from becoming law, should it return to the house. The program will begin at 2pm, and we will hear firsthand how this bill will devastate people’s lives and their loved ones. From there we will proceed to execute the die in. We ask that the mood be somber to reflect the grave and fatal consequences of this legislation. The event will wrap up at 3pm. This event will be a peaceful expression of the First Amendment and is kid friendly.
