Let us join together with our neighbors for quality affordable healthcare for all. Our fundamental human right is under attack by powerful forces in Washington. For too many in this borough, quality healthcare has become a privilege for the few rather than a right for all. The Queens Solidarity Coalition invites all members of the Queens community to this borough-wide series about the state of our healthcare. In this uncertain time, this is our opportunity to come together once again in solidarity behind #queensvalues.

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most
shocking and inhuman.”
–Dr. Martin Luther King
