Single payer rally

Democratic activists and progressive groups in Dubuque hosted a rally May 21 2017, in support of a single-payer health care system.

The “Medicare for All” rally was held from noon to 1 p.m. at Town Clock Plaza.

The rally was organized by Dubuque Democratic Socialists in collaboration with Our Revolution: Dubuque, and Americans for Democratic Action Iowa.

“A Medicare for All health care system is the only way to achieve truly universal health care that is both high in quality and cost savings,” organizers wrote in a press release.

Speakers included Steve Drahozal, chairman of the Dubuque County Democratic Party, Black Hawk County Supervisor Chris Schwartz, Democratic U.S. Congressional candidate Courtney Rowe and mental health professional Derrick Rogers Clark.
