Rev. Dr. William Barber II, Interfaith Clergy Urge Senate to Vote “No” on Health Care Bill
Washington, DC — On Thursday, July 27th, interfaith clergy will gather outside the U.S. Capitol to deliver remarks before moving a silent protest inside the Senate gallery to be the ‘eyes of God’ watching the Senators as they choose which way to vote on the Republican health care bill.
Faith leaders will gather with coffins to symbolize those who could die because of proposed immoral policies.
This action follows the arrest of 31 courageous clergy, doctors and impacted persons who yelled, “Kill the bill, don’t kill us,” in Senate Gallery during Tuesday’s procedural vote on health care.
July 27th at 11 a.m.
