Virtual vigil TODAY, vigil in The Bronx TONIGHT

Across the country and online, we're hosting "We Can't Afford to Wait" vigils for health care. Can you make it to the vigil tonight in The Bronx at 7:30 PM?

RSVP for your local vigil

And there's a virtual vigil going on online right now, where MoveOn members are sharing stories and lighting candles for people they know who can't afford to wait.

Join the Virtual Vigil

Dear MoveOn member,

The health care debate is the biggest political story of the year. 

But what the media and Congress seem to forget is that it's not just about politics or policy minutiae. It's about real people who are really suffering under our broken health care system—and can't afford to wait any longer for real reform.

That's why, today, MoveOn members are holding health care vigils across the country—including a virtual vigil online for those who can't make it to an event. These are shaping up to be our biggest and most powerful events of the year.

Can you make it to the vigil in The Bronx tonight at 7:30 PM? Click here to get the details:

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

No, I can't make it to the event, but I'll join the virtual vigil from home

And all day today, we're holding an online virtual vigil where you can read about other MoveOn members who can't afford to wait, see their faces, and even hear their stories. Plus, you can add a candle to the online vigil for yourself or someone else you know.

Many of those who need health reform the most can't make it out of the house to attend vigils in their communities. This virtual vigil is a place for everyone to meet up and share stories about why health care reform is so important.

Hope you can join us at one or both events, and thanks again for all you do.
