The Golden Gate Bridge March is the flagship event of Bridging the Gap - the National Health Care Day of Action. On June 19th, events across the country will pressure politicians to "bridge the gap" between those of us who have health insurance and the 44 million Americans who don't. Along with the 10,000+ person event in San Francisco, there will be marches in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Boston, Miami, Seattle, Albuquerque, and many other cities.
Join us! This event is sponsored by groups including Americans for Health Care, MTV's Rock the Vote, SEIU and the SEIU Committee of Interns and Residents, Jobs with Justice, the San Francisco Labor Council.
