Will you host a vigil in Inwood?

We're organizing vigils to remind Congress and the media about the people who matter most in the health care debate: those suffering under our broken health care system. Click here to host a vigil in Inwood on September 2nd.

Host a vigil
Dear MoveOn member,

Everybody is talking about health care these days. But they're not talking about what really matters: the people we all know who live in fear, pain or debt under our current health care system.

So next week, we're organizing vigils across the country for everyone who is suffering under our broken health care system. We'll send our members of Congress back to Washington, D.C. with a somber reminder of what's at stake by reading the names and telling the stories of thousands of people who have been denied needed treatments, faced bankruptcy because of a sudden illness, and even died because they lacked coverage. 

Can you host a vigil in Inwood? It's simple, and we'll walk you through every step. Click here to get started:

Every day, 14,000 people lose health care coverage, and thousands face bankruptcy each month because of medical bills.1 We hear from MoveOn members daily who are struggling because of the high cost of coverage or lack of care—people who have to decide who in their family gets to see the doctor. 

At these events, we'll get together to share some of these stories and remind Congress and the media why health care reform is so urgent.

Hosting a vigil is easy. All you need to do is find a good public location for people to gather, invite your friends, and tell the local media what you're planning. We'll help you recruit attendees and give you the materials and training you need to hold a great event.

We're calling these "We can't afford to wait: Public Option NOW!" vigils, and we still need someone to host one in your area. Click here to register a vigil in Inwood:

Thank you so much for all you do.
