Massachusetts health care — wonky, with a healthy dose of reality

Boston Women's March

Boston Women's March

January 19, 2017

Please join Health Care For All, over 120 organizations and over 20,000 individuals at the Boston Women's March on Saturday, January 21st. We will be marching as part of 300 simultaneous, non-partisan, women-led marches happening across the country.

Together, we will send the message to state and national leaders that the United States of America stands for values of human dignity, equal rights and freedom from discrimination. We will focus specifically on showing our support for the Affordable Care Act and the life-saving coverage gains we have made because of the law here in Massachusetts.
