March for Health (Affordable Care Act Community Outreach)
On April 1, 2017, advocates for the Affordable Care Act will gather in cities across the country to speak out in support of President Obama's signature domestic achievement. OFA is one of the partner organizations for the March. OFA has a special place in this ongoing fight as we were among the first to organize to get the ACA passed and to educate communities across the country. In New York City, OFA will join the march at 11AM on 5th Avenue between 57th & 59th street to rally, chant, and get fired up! At 12-12:30PM we will hit the streets and take our message to the people, marching across Central Park South and up Broadway where we will convene on E 61st & Central Park West. We will rally here from approx. 1-3PM with guest speakers. Expect to hear from people talking about women's healthcare rights, disability rights, mental health, how ACA repeal affects the LGBTQ community, employment decisions, veterans, and more. We will also have many patient speakers telling their stories about how ACA and healthcare has impacted their lives. Look for OFA signs near the Apple Store at 767 5th Avenue, between 58th and 59th Streets as our gathering spot and let us march together to maintain healthrights for all Americans. #marchforhealth.
