August 16th - Statement on Health Care For All's Commitment to Combating Injustice

(Boston, MA) - " Health Care For All is a social justice organization committed to defending the rights of all people to affordable, quality health care regardless of race, religion or gender identity. We condemn the violence and fear mongering propagated by hate groups this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as any discussions that stop short of calling out acts of discrimination and hatred for what they truly are.

"The effects of fear, racism and discriminatory policies have drastic and negative impacts on the health and well-being of some of our most vulnerable communities. Health Care For All is committed to combating racial disparities and injustice, and we will continue to promote inclusion, equity and compassion as both an organization and as a group of citizens working to protect the rights of all people in every way we can."
