Join us to pray, fast and take action to ensure affordable health care to Racine County's working poor.
During the Lenten season, Racine religious congregations, health care providers and community organizations will come together to fast and pray at four Racine churches on consecutive Saturdays - March 8, 15, 22 & 29 from 9am to 5pm. Fast for one meal or for 24 hours. Join us to support fasting participants, pray and tell your story - all denominations are welcome.
We will come together to focus our thoughts and prayers by asking that Medicaid be expanded in Racine County for over three thousand Racine county individuals and children.
Our call for Medicaid expansion includes a petition for Racine county residents. Read the petition, sign and share with your friends. The petition will be shared with the Racine County Board of Supervisors and WI State Legislators at the conclusion of our Lenten events.
Kick-off event will take place on Ash Wednesday - March 5th at Christ Church 5109 Washington Ave. in Racine. The event will include a press conference at 11:45am and an ecumenical observance from 12 to 1pm. All are welcome.
