How to organize a vigil for Health Care. Free Training.

August 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Every year, 111 Wyomingites die due to lack of access to healthcare. They make too much money to qualify for Medicaid and not enough money to qualify for Obamacare.  

We’ll be holding vigils across the state on/around Friday, September 17 to honor the people who have lost their lives and to send a message to our lawmakers that they need to pass Medicaid expansion.
 
We’re hosting a series of trainings every other Wednesday evening, starting Wednesday 7/28, from 5:30-7.  That’ll be 5 group meetings between now and the vigils (7/28, 8/11, 8/25, and 9/8, plus a final prep meeting the week of the vigils on 9/15) .

At the trainings we’ll learn about how to assemble a team (with particular roles) to organize the event.  We’ll learn to recruit and prep clergy, storytellers, the public, and the press to attend. And we’ll generate creative ideas to use across the state at our actions.
