Join “Our First Stand” on Jan. 15 to Save Health Care

Did you catch Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on The Rachel Maddow Show this week? In his role as Outreach Chair for Senate Democrats, Bernie outlined the new plan to hold a series of rallies across the country on January 15, 2017. The rallies are called Our First Stand: Save Health Care and will oppose the Republican Party’s attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, as well as protect Medicare and Medicaid.

You can bet that future rallies will be just as strategic.
