A Call to Expand Medicaid in Racine County


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.
