Stand Against Medical Debt!

from SEIU and Citizen Action

Citizen Action of Wisconsin and SEIU Healthcare are taking a stand against medical debt. Join us for a socially-distant rally and protest to let Gundersen Health System know that they need to stop suing their employees and the community over medical debt!

Saturday, August 2 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Meet at Poage Park, 1301 Fifth Avenue South

Please use this form to RSVP for this important event

As one of the largest employers and health care providers in our community, Gundersen Health System has a responsibility to our most vulnerable citizens. In just the past few years, Gundersen has taken hundreds of our community members to court for unpaid medical debt – including its own employees who cannot afford the who cannot afford the steep cost of the Hospital's insurance plan.

Gundersen has been named one of the most profitable hospitals in the country.  Community members and Gundersen employees should be able to receive affordable services at a nonprofit Hospital without being sued, taken to collections, or having their wages garnished.
We demand Gundersen:

1. Cease suing our community members and employees for medical debt
2. Forgive existing medical debt
3. Provide employees with affordable health insurance coverage

Remember to bring water and sunscreen.  Also please wear the color purple in solidarity.
