From our allies at Medicaid Matters:
Maryland ADAPT and Medicaid Matters! Maryland are about to show Maryland Medicaid the love. On Feb. 14 at noon, consumers, advocates, legislators and state officials will rock Lawyers Mall in front of the Statehouse in Annapolis at the “Have a Heart for Maryland Medicaid” celebration, from noon to 12:35
Maryland’s Medicaid budget for community services has been under siege while institutional budgets have been increased. This year, the disabilities community needs legislators to have a heart for those who depend on Medicaid’s life saving benefits and services.
The Have a Heart for Maryland Medicaid campaign is part of a national day of celebration and education about the program. Advocacy groups around the country will host events that demonstrate how much they cherish a program that allows them to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
Cupid will pump up the crowd in Annapolis, many of whom know Medicaid’s value personally. Individuals will have a chance to have their “My Medicaid Matters to me because…” story recorded for posting. [note: Volunteers welcome/requested]
Right after the rally, educational Valentines will be distributed to the entire Maryland legislature.
This event will take place rain, snow, shine, or bitter cold, as long as public transportation is running. Please see the attached flyer for Mobility paratransit drop off/pick up information.
Organizations interested in participating should call Cheryl @ 301-758-4473 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we bring enough materials. If you would like to be a sponsor and have your logo on the Valentines, let us know at email@example.com by Thursday February 7th.
