AHCA Protest on Capitol Hill

  • Capitol Hill Washington, DC (map)

Join us for an AHCA protest on Capitol Hill to let the members of the House of Representatives know how the Americans they represent feel about their vote to PASS the AHCA (HR 1628). They will be returned to Capitol Hill 5/16/17 and need to hear from us! The senate needs to see the backlash so they know what to expect if they don’t KILL THIS BILL!

This will be a peaceful gathering and all are welcome to attend. Signs are welcome, but please follow the rules on the "MORE INFO" doc regarding signage.

We are encouraging all who attend to make WANTED posters for Reps who voted in FAVOR of HR 1628. The signs should say WANTED: [REP NAME] FOR ACCESSORY TO THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF 24 MILLION AMERICANS. This is a suggestion, but it would be great if we could see A LOT of these with members of the House from around the country.

Please make sure you leave with everything you come with! We want to leave the protest area in better shape than when we arrive.

 

Travel Plans: There is no parking on the Capitol Hill grounds. The nearest public parking facility is at Union Station, to the north of the Capitol. Metered street parking is found along the Mall to the west of the Capitol.

If possible, we suggest taking one of the DC metro lines to Union Station (red line). From Union Station it is 1.2 miles to the space in front of the Capitol building where we will be protesting. Walking directions can be found hereWe encourage everyone who is planning to come, to share this event with their network and arrange as much carpooling as possible.


Not everyone who will be affected if this bill passes, is in a situation where they are able to take the day off work to join us. If you can make it, PLEASE ATTEND FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT! We are in this together and access to healthcare affects ALL of us!
