Holding Hands for Healthcare (San Francisco)

  • Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital 1001 Potrero Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Senate Republicans have just voted to start debating the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Join us for Holding Hands for Healthcare, an emergency action of solidarity to protect Obamacare and resist a repeal that would endanger tens of millions of lives. 

This participatory activist performance will be starting at 5pm sharp at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where 78% of the patients are insured under Medicare or Medi-Cal. We'll be meeting in front of the new Zuckerberg building on Potrero Avenue side, a recent addition to Main Building. Please join our circle from any direction.** The goal is to link hands around the entire Main Building complex. For those willing to stay longer, we will hold a “soapbox” social mingling with open mic time to share ACA stories after 5:30pm. 

Please wear a white shirt, to which we'll pin a sheet of paper with messaging that people can read even while driving by observing from a distance. Suggested messages: Protect Our Healthcare, Hold Hands To Protect Healthcare, Stand Indivisible. 

We are also looking for volunteers to show up a bit earlier, at 4:30pm, to help kickstart the human chain. If you're available and interested, please let us know in the comments!

This peaceful protest is organized by Indivisible SF. It has been inspired by a City Repair Project performance art piece, Hands Around Portland (1996).
