Action Network RSVP page for Asheville: Bill Burning Rally in Support of Medicare For All (actionnetwork.org)

Medical Bills, Prescription Costs, Insurance Premiums and Deductibles -- they're all too high. To show we're fed up with putting profit over people, we've decided to burn our bills (and coverage denials) publicly as an act of solidarity with each other and in opposition to our inhumane for-profit health insurance system. Come share your story and burn your paper bills in this community and power building event. We’ll also have an action for you to do - writing a postcard to Congress supporting Medicare for All using our cool new postcard design!

COVID Precautions: The hosts at this bill burn bonfire will enforce Covid-safety precautions, including masks worn by all individuals (including when speaking) and the number of guests around the fire will be restricted to ensure social distancing guidelines. Extra masks and sanitizer will be available for guests. We are encouraging people to drop-in to the event to share their story and some time around the fire, then rotate out to allow more people to join.  We recommend these guidelines to stay safe when participating in this event: https://bit.ly/NCBillBurnSafety

Our communities have an urgent need for healthcare relief and the North Carolina Medicare for All coalition believes it's necessary to mobilize now to achieve the health justice we desperately need. Together we will oppose our unjust and racist healthcare system, and advocate for the creation of a universal, single-payer Improved Medicare For All system.

Can't make it in person? Want to do your own backyard bill burn? Record a video and share it using #NCBillBurn + @NCM4A.
