National Day of Remembrance and Hope for Those Who Die for Lack of Health Care

From Health Action New Mexico:

Join Us and Let Our Voices Be Heard!

People of Faith and People of Conscience are gathering
across New Mexico to observe
the National Day of Remembrance and Hope
for the 45,000 children, women and men who die
every year in this country for lack of health care.
By telling their stories we hope to make it imperative
for every member of Congress with a conscience
to vote “yes” for health care reform that is
inclusive, affordable, accessible, accountable,
and works for all of us.
