–Over the last four years, the federal government's ability to make
science-based decisions deteriorated. Having an administration that ignored
science led to widespread "brain drain" at agencies as staff left
their positions and were not always replaced. Low-income communities and
communities of color, who already face the disproportionate burden of health
and environmental hazards, have been made even more unsafe as scientific
capacity and enforcement of environmental regulations dwindled.
–Jasmine Ruddy [email@example.com] wants
you to know that on Wed., March 17 at noon ET, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep.
Debbie Dingell will re-introduce Medicare for All into Congress. There is a record number of original
cosponsors. Over half the Democratic caucus has already signed onto the bill,
but more are needed. To celebrate and
chart out the plan ahead, come to a special town hall live stream to hear
directly from some of the bill’s cosponsors, as well as nurses, patients,
advocates, and organizational and union leaders – including Executive Director,
Bonnie Castillo, RN, Nurses’ Campaign to Win Medicare for All. RSVP at https://act.medicare4all.org/signup/mfa-intro-fb/?source=em20210316-94514&t=2&akid=94514%2E162593%2EXzxen_.
