Medicare For All March and Rally
South Salem High School students from the Progressive Activist Club held a rally at the Oregon State Capitol on April 13, 2019.
Sonia Boeger, Senior and President of the Progressive Activist Club, led the event by hyping up the crowd and introducing speakers such as Deb Patterson, Mike Huntington, KC, Trevor Phillips and Dr. Tony Germann. “I would like to thank the Salem Chapter of Democratic Socialist of America, Healthcare For All of Oregon, Marion County Democrats and Mid-Valley Healthcare Advocates for spreading the word and helping contribute to this event,” Boeger said.
Despite the rain, a few people did show up in support of the event and advocated for something they feel would help everyone lead a better life, especially for those who struggled to pay for medical checkups or procedures.
