HealingUS Candlelight Vigil for Danny Desnoyers & Medicare For All

Join us in an evening of action as we remember Danny Desnoyers and the 68,000 precious human lives lost every year due to lack of adequate healthcare. This event aims not only to honor Danny's memory but also to ignite a movement demanding transformative change in our healthcare system. We'll unite our voices in a call for national improved, single-payer Medicare for All, challenging the greed of health insurance corporations.
Please also bring a lit candle to the vigil, allowing us to create a powerful visual moment of remembrance and unity across our virtual gathering. Share using the hashtag #HealingUSWithLove
