Funeral March & Rally for Brooklyn Healthcare
Where: Cadman Plaza Park, Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn, NY
Join patients, community supporters, elected leaders, NYSNA & 1199SEIU to mourn the death of healthcare in Brooklyn.
Several Brooklyn hospitals, including Interfaith Medical Center and Long Island College Hospital, are under threat of closure.
Meanwhile, health disparities in our borough are climbing at alarming rate. Low income, people of color, and the uninsured have fewer and fewer options for receiving care.
We’ll meet at Cadman Plaza at 4pm and march over the bridge and then hold a rally at Foley Square in Manhattan at 5pm. [[Please note the change in Manhattan rally location]]
Make no mistake – if any of our hospitals close, people will die.
Let’s march and mourn to stop the death of Brooklyn healthcare!
