AHCA SILENT PROTEST IN WICHITA FALLS
Indivisible Wichita Falls and Disabled Lives Matter Protest of Repeal and Replace
Wichita Falls, TX, May 15, 2017– On Saturday, May 20th from 3 PM to 5 PM Indivisible Wichita Falls and Disabled Lives Matter of Wichita Falls will be hosting a non-partisan, silent protest at the four corners of Kemp and Midwestern Parkway.
This event is strictly related to the passage of the AHCA and the effects it will have on American families. All who will be affected by this law, or anyone who is against the passage of the law are invited to join with signs and their personal stories on this day. We will stand in solidarity with those this law will hurt.
We ask that anyone coming to the event respect businesses in the area by ride sharing, or parking and walking to the event from on street parking around the area.
“My daughter will be affected by this, and many in my group are in complete despair,” said Lisa Pearson of Disabled Lives Matter
