#Health4All Tour Makes Stop in Fresno
It was a time for celebration for more than 75 Fresno Building Healthy Communities leaders last week. Senator Ricardo Lara (D – Bell Gardens) made a stop in southwest Fresno to meet with community advocates and partners on his #Health4All Statewide Tour to celebrate securing $40 million to cover undocumented children starting May 2016.
It’s Time to Truly Cover Everyone!
1.4 million undocumented Californians are locked out of access to affordable, quality health care. Diana’s parents, Antonio and Ramona, pay their taxes and work tirelessly. Antonio and Ramona’s only option is to persevere through painful illnesses and ailments because they are denied access to affordable health coverage due to their immigration status. We need #Health4All because no one should be forced to suffer and live in pain.
It is time to truly cover everyone. #HealthAndJustice4All
