WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On Monday, September 25th at 1 p.m., prominent faith leaders from throughout the region will hold a rally on Capitol Hill to protect the 22 million Americans who will lose their health care if Congress passes the Graham-Cassidy bill.

 

Religious leaders will deliver a moral declaration to Senator McConnell’s office demanding all senators and public servants to do the right thing and preserve the life-saving care afforded to thousands of our nation’s children, seniors and people with disabilities by the Affordable Care Act.  

 

Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’”

September 25, 2017 at 1 p.m.
