Campaign to preserve, improve, and expand Medicare-to-All
This summer marks the 50th year of Medicare and the 80th year of Social Security, arguably the nation’s two most successful social programs, keeping millions of older and disabled people out of poverty.
Yet both programs are at a crossroads: The corporate agenda in government is to restrict who is eligible, reduce their benefits, cut their funding, and turn them over to private companies. But workers, retirees, and their families need these programs as never before.
The speakers will describe how senior groups, labor unions, and community groups are mounting a Preserve, Improve, and Expand-Medicare-to-All campaign, including a giant event at Oakland’s Ogawa Plaza on Thursday, July 30 at 11 a.m.
They will also describe how these groups are also actively supporting bills in Congress to improve and stabilize Social Security.
At 555 Ellis Street (Between Leavenworth & Hyde).  Contact Michael Lyon, 415-215-7575, mlyon01@comcast.net or Kathie Piccagli, 415-235-1300, kpiccagli@gmail.com
