Moral Mondays & “Walking Mayor” Come to Washington for Medicaid Expansion & Support for Rural Healthcare

Rally - Mon July 28 at 11:30 AM
Location - US Capitol, Upper Senate Park 

Last 5 Miles to US Capitol begins at 7 AM 
Location - Gravelly Point, Arlington, VA 

Expanding Medicaid saves lives. When the North Carolina state legislature denied the Medicaid expansion, a health care corporation decided that providing care in rural areas was no longer profitable and the small town of Belhaven lost its hospital.

Belhaven is not alone. Rural healthcare is in a crisis. Across the nation, more rural hospitals have closed in the last year than in the last 15 years combined, leaving people mired in medical deserts without access to emergency services.

Mayor Adam O’Neal, Belhaven’s Republican mayor and community members are walking 273 miles to the nation’s capitol to tell their story. On Monday, Mayor Adam O’Neal will stand with Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the NC 

NAACP and architect of the Forward Together Moral Monday Movement, as they petition political leaders to address this rural health care crisis at a Moral Monday rally and press conference

Join Mayor Adam O’Neal and Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II on July 28th for a Rally and Press Conference. It is time to stand up for a health care system that cares about people, not profits.
