This is a virtual event

On Thursday, May 30: join us for a special Maryland statewide Medicare for All virtual town hall, featuring U.S. Rep. Kweisi Mfume and a panel of Maryland experts.

RSVP now on this page to be a part of this important conversation.

Maryland has a reputation as one of the better states to receive healthcare in the United States. When you scratch below the surface, a different picture emerges that reflects the brokenness of the US health insurance system.  Co-pays, deductibles, cumbersome pre-authorizations and other unnecessary barriers prevent Marylanders from receiving the care they need. In addition, the status quo of U.S. healthcare is too expensive and inefficient.

It is past time to demand Medicare for All!

Medicare for All will cover all medically appropriate care including dental, vision, reproductive care, long-term care, prescription drugs and more, with no out-of-pocket costs.

Please join Congressman Kweisi Mfume and a panel of statewide experts for an important state-wide virtual Medicare for All townhall.

We will discuss how Maryland residents can support one another through this still ongoing healthcare crisis and ways that we can get involved locally to build support for Medicare for All, including how to pass city and county council resolutions.

Speakers include:

  • U.S. Rep. Kweisi Mfume, Maryland's 7th Congressional District
  • Aaron Seyedian, Well Paid Maids
  • Dr. Alankrita Olson, Maryland Physicians for a National Health Program
  • Karen Qi, Students for a National Health Program
  • Jibran Eubanks, SEIU 1199
  • Dr. Yewande Oladeinde, public health expert
  • Patty Snee, Progressive Maryland
  • Brittany Shannahan, Public Citizen
  • and more!

Join us from the comfort of your home. Bring your questions! Bring your ideas!
