On Friday (9/28) at noon, the Purple Bus VoteHealthCare.org Tour pulls into City Hall Plaza, by the Government Center T stop.

Kathie McClure is a lawyer and a mother of two from Georgia who embarked in "The Purple Bus adventure" to tell the "truth" about the Affordable Care Act across the country. Her children have pre-existing conditions and could not be insured in the private market until the ACA was implemented. Now she wants to educate the public about the benefits of "Obamacare" for her children and other 50 million uninsured Americans.

Health Care For All and Community Catalyst are joining efforts with the Purple Bus Tour to highlight the importance of health care issues in this upcoming elections and to ask the public to sign the pledge to be "a health care voter."

Join Kathie and us at noon on Friday.
