Rally for ACA Tomorrow Jan 28 in West Chester

Rally tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 28th at 1 PM at the Old Courthouse, High and Market Streets is West Chester, protesting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without adequate replacement.


We need big signs! The signs should clearly connect Costello to taking health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and thousands of people in his district.

We need large signs to effectively deliver that message. 2ft x 3ft, or 3ft x 4ft

“Save the ACA” and other colorful call to action signs are great too.

“Wear Orange” event in West Chester on Thursday

The color orange symbolizes the value of human life. Hunters wear orange in the woods to protect themselves and others. In 2013, teens on the South Side of Chicago asked classmates to honor their murdered friend by wearing orange. That simple call to action has grown into a national movement – and orange is becoming the symbol of gun safety.

Thursday, June 2nd is National Gun Violence Prevention Day People all across the United States will be wearing orange and participating in local events drawing public attention to the need for sensible gun policy.
