Jersey City: We can't afford to wait for health care

This Wednesday, MoveOn members are planning hundreds of candlight vigils for all those who can't afford to wait for health care reform.

There's a vigil in Jersey City on Wednesday at 7:30 PM. Can you make it?

RSVP for your local vigil

Dear MoveOn member,

Senator Ted Kennedy started fighting for health care for all Americans more than forty years ago.

Now it's up to each and every one of us to pick up the torch carried by Senator Kennedy for so long. We can't wait any longer to pass health care reform for everyone.

With just days until Congress returns to D.C., MoveOn members are organizing hundreds of candlelight vigils across the country for all the people suffering under our broken health care system.

Next Wednesday, there's a vigil in Jersey City. Can you make it?

Yes, I'll be there on Wednesday at 7:30 PM.

Sorry, I can't make it.

Every day, 14,000 people lose health care coverage, and thousands face bankruptcy each month because of medical bills.1 We hear from lots of MoveOn members who are struggling because of the high cost of coverage or denial of care.

At the vigils, from coast to coast, we'll read the names and hear the stories of hundreds of these people—folks who are suffering under our broken health care system. It'll be a powerful reminder to Congress and the media why health care reform is so urgent.

We're calling these "We Can't Afford to Wait" vigils. Click here for more details and to RSVP for the vigil in Jersey City:

Sorry, I can't make it:

Hope you can join us, and thanks again for all you do.

P.S. Are you, or is someone you care about, suffering under this broken health care system? Denied needed treatments, buried in medical debt, or going without coverage? If so, please take a moment to submit your/their name to be read at our vigils:
