Die-In

  • Huntington Beach Pier Huntington Beach, CA, 92648 United States (map)

In response to the recent vote in the House of Representatives, we are hosting a "Die-In" event to demonstrate the danger posed by the new American Health Care Act. While congressional republicans are adhering to the tale that pre-existing conditions are covered by the new iteration of the previously failed bill, the truth is that the new law, if passed, will fundamentally discriminate against anyone with pre-existing medical conditions. Employer provided policies are also under threat as the AHCA will essentially reduce the quality standards for medical care. In Rohrabacher's district alone, it is estimated that over 316,000 constituents will be adversely affected. Our "Die-In" is an attempt to show that the new bill will be deadly for many people already vulnerable. Our plan is to act as casualties of the AHCA by lying down with tombstone style messages for our congressman expressing how the AHCA will affect us as individuals. Bring your own tombstone with choice words in epitaph. We will allow time for speakers at the end of the event.
