Join us for a California statewide teach-in about the issue of care rationing with these powerful speakers: Fernando Torres-Gil, Dr. Allen Cooper, Denny Chan, and Anita Cameron.

As hospitals fill up with COVID patients, they risk running out of beds, ventilators, and staff. Will they have to choose who to treat? Will seniors, disabled people, and people of color be at the bottom of the list? Join us to learn about the issue, understand your rights, and find out what you can do.

ASL Accessible: This teach-in will have ASL interpreting and live captioning.
